House Of Cards For Real

In the first season of House of Cards, the teacher's union strikes.  A big point of contention is teacher evaluations.  The head of the union is a man of honor and holds his ground until he is goaded into hitting Francis Underwood, the congressman in charge of settling the strike.  He is then blackmailed into giving in on every point and ends the strike.

True House Of Cards is fiction, but it is loosely based on real life politics.  Someone must have a hold on Mulgrew to make him so willing to sell out the people he represents.

Yep, I totally agree. And keep in mind the CEO of Netflix is a member of the Reform group.

I have no idea what teachers see in this contract, and if it's the money it will fly away when the new health plan is announced.
