Your brain on union
Gotta love how the Los Angeles School District, awash in red ink, ordered a hiring freeze:
The only exceptions to the hiring freeze will be for classroom teachers, principals, assistant principals, cafeteria managers, school police officers, bus drivers, teachers' assistants, education aides, special education assistants and plant managers.
In other words, they ordered a hiring freeze except for union workers, whom they will continue to hire without regard to minor concerns like budget deficits.
The entire state is an object lesson in how not to govern. That they can still find new ways to sell out the people to unions is a testament to the enduring creativity of the bureaucratic mind.
