Colorado GOP: Teachers Who Go on Strike Should Go to Jail.
SB18-264 — AKA the Prohibit Public School Teacher Strikes Bill — was introduced by Colorado Senator Bob Gardner [R-12/[no phone numbers allowed]/@senbobgardner] and Representative Paul Lundeen [R-19/[no phone numbers allowed]/@paul_lundeen]; it allows school districts to seek court injunctions banning public school teachers from striking, so that they can be held in contempt should they withdraw their labor, and be imprisoned for contempt.
The bill also requires school districts to instantly fire any teacher found in contempt of court, regardless of qualification, seniority, or other factors.
Forced labor, anybody? If nothing else demonstrates the contempt the GOP has for American workers, and especially public sector workers, this should do it.
So, about that whole personal liberty thing ….

We should pay our politicians the same amount as our teachers both jobs are just as important. If you say that’s not enough for a politician to live on you’re proving my point. https://t.co/AWKYTB0cCR
