Another CM member asked this question and it kind of got glossed over, so how about it ladies...
what happens to the poor kids that don't get their free breakfasts and lunches while the teachers strike (over a new law, mind you, not contract negotiations or anything like that).
Is someone running around with sack lunches to make sure those babies don't go hungry? What about the poor families whose budget is already stretched to the breaking point having to feed their kids six extra meals this week?
Does this matter at all? Or is the teacher's right to bargain for the highest raise they want most important? The law simply states that anything over 1.8 percent would have to go to a vote. NOT that they can't have a union rep. This is a spin off from another question.

lovingangels, I have a problem with people assuming that 'poor' kids don't get food. Most of these kids receive food stamps. They have plenty of food at home. Plus, most of these kids have money. There is a kid at our school who charged $12 of extra food (the lunchroom staff can't refuse to 'charge' his extra.) He hasn't turned in his lunch form for free or reduced because he forgets, so he doesn't get lunch like the rest. They give him a cheese sandwich, and apple and a cookie absolutely free which he throws away because he says it is just cheese. He was at school yesterday with $75 in his pocket. I told him to pay his bill and buy some lunch (his mom works). He refused. Lunch is suppose to be free. These children ate exactly what they eat on the weekend and during the summer - the food they buy with food stamps. No one went hungry.
