Teacher Union Hypocrites
Evan Grossman and Larry Sand weigh in on American Federation of Teachers’ (AFT) president Randi Weingarten and her never-ending whining about the Koch brothers’ political spending. Weingarten carefully ignores the fact that she forces teachers to contribute to the AFT’s coffers whether they want to or not. The Friedrichs v. CTA case that is before the Supreme Court could bring Weingarten’s carefully constructed house of forced dues down in a jiffy.
In an email from The American Federation of Teachers to its members, president Randi Weingarten accuses conservatives — such as Charles and David Koch — of buying politicians.
That’s interesting, because AFT has done the same thing for years.
