Mitt Romney’s comment on America’s poor and the safety net got the Left’s panties in a wad.
A head union thug tells poor New Jersey familes to suck it up and there’s nary a peep out of the little effetes.
A New Jersey teachers union chief whose salary tops $300,000 is under fire for saying in a recent interview that “life’s not always fair” while arguing against vouchers to send poor students to private schools.
New Jersey Education Association Executive Director Vincent Giordano made the comment on the local “New Jersey Capitol Report” program over the weekend. During the interview, he was challenged by the host on why low-income families should not have the same options as other families when their child is in a failing school.
“Those parents should have exactly the same options and they do. We don’t say that you can’t take your kid out of the public school. We would argue not and we would say ‘let’s work more closely and more harmoniously,'” Giordano said.
When told some families cannot afford to finance the shift to private school without government help, Giordano said: “Well, you know, life’s not always fair and I’m sorry about that.”
The interview clip swiftly spread on the web, along with reminders about Giordano’s healthy salary.
The Newark Star-Ledger reported in 2010 that his salary was nearly $422,000, and total compensation roughly $550,000 when deferred compensation and other benefits are counted.
Nope, life ain’t fair. Especially for the saps on the receiving end of socialist union hypocrisy. So much for the DemLeft being a champion of the working class. Don’t think for a minute that unions mind keeping the poor in their place. It gives them a voting bloc to exploit while mouthing platitudes about evil rich corporate owners versus the workers.
Corrupt assholes like Giordano are what happens when tenure gets preference over merit.
