I just read that the San Francisco teachers union is voting to cut aid to Israel. Whether or not someone supports Israel is a personal matter. My question is: what does the teachers union, or any union for that matter, have to do with aid to Isreal? And I’m retired union. Can someone please explain?
The Teacher’s Unions are nothing more than a financial arm of the Democratic Party. Their support, and money, are a mainstay of Democratic political strategy. So when they stage a vote like this, they are announcing to any potential candidates the orthodoxy they will be required to support, guaranteeing that all Democratic candidates will march in lockstep.
