Rally for a Raise! This Wednesday Nov. 13, 2013- Los Angeles

It's time for a raise!

Los Angeles Unified teachers will be rallying at the LAUSD headquarters in downtown L.A. this Wednesday for a raise, cost of living increase, or whatever you want to call it.

What are some reasons for the rally?

1) L.A. teachers have not been given a raise since 2007. Cost of living goes up every year, so they feel that it is time now to ask for a wage increase.

2) The district has shown that it has the money to pay for "pet projects," such as the ipad rollout for every student within the district. If the district has that kind of money to spend 100 million on ipads, then they can afford taking care of it's teachers.

So, what now?

The Teacherlinx team will attend the Wednesday rally to bring you the latest and greatest breaking news and action!

We look forward to provide some unique video of the rally and the speech made by the president of the United Teacher of Los Angeles union, Mr. Warren Fletcher.

So, what do you think about a teacher pay raise in Los Angeles?
