I would hazard that the teachers and unions have a different reason than the parents.

What in the he## does that matter? A killer is on the loose. Don't know about you, but I'd rather see a murderer in custody than see a 12-year old sneaking out at night...

I don't care if the unions and democrats support the measure or not, parents should have a say as to whether their children take the tests. They're their children not the state's.

Protesters target McDonald's headquarters in pay fight

10 months, 1 week ago from Chicago Tribune

From from Chicago Tribune:

Hundreds of low-wage McDonald's workers protested near the fast-food chain's headquarters on Wednesday calling for a significant pay hike, and several dozen were peacefully arrested. 

McDonald's workers are calling for roughly a doubling of pay to $15 per hour and the right to form a union that would bargain over benefits and wages on their behalf.

Those marked with yellow arm bands came prepared to be arrested and about two dozen were led by police to a bus.

About 500 to 600 people clogged the entrance, with some singing “We shall not be moved” as police warned them they could be arrested if they did not move back. Police led protestors away from the front one by one.

The latest, and possibly largest, protest against the global chain comes a day before McDonald’s Thursday annual meeting, where shareholders will weigh in on the company's executive compensation. Chief Executive Don Thompson took home total compensation of $9.5 million in 2013.

Fast food workers in Chicago make about $8.25 per hour, the state’s minimum wage. Many are part-time workers without benefits and don’t have a set schedule.

Company officials could not be reached for comment.
