Well in yet another example of a teachers union putting its “members’” needs ahead of the students, we have this story about the Milwaukee teachers union and their fight to get taxpayer-funded Viagra back.
According to the article a consultant was hired to determine what the cost would be to provide erectile dysfunction medications to male teachers. The consultant determined that the cost to the Milwaukee school district would be approximately $786,000 per year.
The union has contended that out of the overall $1.3 billion annual budget that this sum is trivial and provides a much needed benefit to their members. But on the other hand, the district is planning to lay off 393 teachers.
Now you Mandarin figures that if the average teacher’s salary is $60,000 you could probably save 12 teaching jobs. And your Mandarin is sure that these 12 teachers would rather not get screwed so that other union members could get laid.
Oh well, but I’m sure in true teachers union fashion, they will claim that ultimately their demands for these drugs will benefit the children. Now that truely is a scary thought, worse than that dream your Mandarin has where he is late for the final and shows up to class in GorT’s underwear. Unfortunatly for both your Mandarin and GorT, GorT is still wearing it.
The Mandarin, whose real name is 吏恆, joined the order in 1309, and introduced the Gormogons into England during the 18th Century.
The Mandarin enjoys spending time with his pet manticore, Βάρἰκος, or Barry (who can be found in the Bestiary). When not in the Castle…well, frankly, nobody is quite sure where he goes.
The Mandarin popularized the fine art of “gut booting,” by which he delivers a powerful kick to the stomach of anyone that annoys him. Although nearly universal today, the act of gut booting or threatening someone or something with a gut boot is solely due to him.
