Parents will suffer while teachers strike

BY TEXT: It is appalling that schools will close on Weds meaning parents cannot work.

With only one weeks notice I can’t get leave, plus it’s a really busy time for any industry involved with retail. I fear children will be left home alone in some cases. Some teachers will be out enjoying day off shopping on Weds whilst we worry about losing our jobs and trying to make ends meet. Employees in the public sector are greedy and selfish whilst in the private sector we have accepted reduced hours, pay freeze and diminishing pensions - they want no cuts to their over generous benefits.

And to ensure they keep them we all suffer.
