    What good will that do unless you are delivering students?

    Yup. Here we are not allowed. Verizon went on strike a few years ago when I was in package. We didn’t take anything out. Supervisors met Verizon management at designated locations to make deliveries

    There’s an option all the way at the bottom of the screen when you’re in non delivery. I believe it’s X for strike.

    Yes but be sure those teachers are on strike. Some schools may not be in the same district or may even be private schools.

    For the most part if you have to physically cross a strike line, don't deliver. If everyone but management is gone and someone is at the office, go ahead. I would call the district main office since that would be a good way to CYA.

    Why they on strike? Long time teachers in my state make 100k a year.

    Not. Then you'd be delivering struck goods.

    Their class sizes are often 45+ and CA is 43/50 in per-pupil spending. Annual mean wage for a teacher in the LA School District is 75K.

    California doesn't tax enough.

    How much are top earners making?

    75k for 114 days of work is amazing! Sign me up!

    It’s probably more about the class sizes and resource allocation. Doesn’t matter what you make if you’ve got 50 kids in your class who you’re also buying supplies for and your workday is unmanageable.

    I wonder how many are children of, or are themselves, illegals?
