Labor Pains: Because Being in a Union can be Painful

Nomination of the Week: The Drunk Gunman

As nominations for our “Ten Worst Union-Protected Teachers” contest continue to roll in, we’ll be blogging some of the highlights. (Click here to see some previously featured entries.)

This week’s featured nominee pulled up, drunk, to the drive-thru window of a fast-food restaurant. After ordering, he became angry that he wasn’t getting his food fast enough, so he took out a gun and started waving it at restaurant employees. After his arrest, he pled nolo contendere to all charges and was sent to jail. His students, meanwhile, were told he was caring for an ill family member; now out of jail, he’s back in the classroom with his job intact.
