Chances are, you haven’t heard about the Ontario teacher’s strike. Why would you have? Unless you live in the province of Ontario or actively search for Canadian provincial news, public sector strikes within a Canadian province doesn’t receive national or international coverage. However in this particular case, it should be reported on internationally. The ongoing union dispute highlights the power of large public unions and their bully-like mentality. This strike highlights how most governments can frivolously spend taxpayer dollars to appease public unions. It should provide thought and reflection about where all of your taxpayer dollars are going and which individuals are benefiting.
