Fox News anchor Stuart Varney was not happy about the Wisconsin teacher sick-in. Not happy at all.
He jumped all over Robert Kraig, executive director for Citizen Action of Wisconsin, an “independent” group that’s thrown its weight behind the public employee unions in their battle against Republican Governor Scott Walker’s budget slashing plans.
Varney noted, rather reasonably we thought, that it’s irresponsible for teachers to use taxpayer-paid sick time to demand that the taxpayers give them even more.
When the Fox host rolled video of public school teachers “using their students as political props,” Kraig lauded the teachers and students for “standing up for their fundamental human rights.”
“Collective bargaining laws in Wisconsin were created,” he said, “to create labor stability so that you didn’t have any kind of public service disruptions.”
You know, like sick-outs.
