Following his divide and conquer strategy that has worked successfully with district vs charter parents, Bloomberg decided to continue his proven method by attempting to pit firefighters and policeman against teachers by lying to the public stating they receive an annual Christmas bonus of $12,000 for nothing AND that money could go towards preventing teacher layoffs.
This is another BIG FAT LIE of Bloomberg’s. Just like the lowering of the racial achievement gap, graduation rates and charters outperforming district schools.
The $12,000 was agreed upon because in the 1970′s the firefighters, policemen, teachers AND other labor unions SAVED NYC from bankruptcy. Yes, Bloomberg, LABOR saved NYC!
Kudos to the policeman and firefighters unions for calling Bloomberg a LIAR.
What do you think about Bloomberg’s latest despicable, expected lies? Do you think all labor unions will now finally come together and fight to save our city, our schools and our jobs?
