Students protest stalled negotiations
A group of students in Ironwood, Mich., expressed their displeasure over unsuccessful contract negotiations between the teachers union and their school board by wearing matching T-shirts to school recently. Several dozen students at Wright High School in the Upper Peninsula’s Ironwood wore the maroon shirts that said "What about US?" on the front and "87 percent" on the back. Student organizers said the "87 percent" was in reference to the percentage of American workers who choose not to belong to unions.
