RACINE, WI – Randy Bryce released the following statement on Teacher Appreciation Day:
“Every day our teachers have to fight to get the resources and support they need. It’s simple: when we take care of our teachers, we take care of our kids. Our teachers aren’t demanding outrageous luxuries– they’re fighting for the wages they need to survive. In Wisconsin, teachers are seeing lower pay and fewer benefits because of the elimination of collective union bargaining rights implemented by the Walker administration. I stand with the Wisconsin teachers that are fighting to get the respect all our educators rightfully deserve.”
