"To three quarters of Puerto Rico's more than 20,000 public school teachers decided not to show up for work They say they're fed up with the dismal pay made worse by the fact that soon changes to their pension system will make surviving as a teacher on the island even harder A march and protest today originally planned as a teacher strike has expanded to include a wide range of public sector employees from firefighters to police who say they are bearing the brunt of Puerto Rico's ongoing debt crisis We're joined now by Jose Ron he's a middle school English teacher in the town of barceloneta Mister sintran thanks for joining all things considered Thank you guys for calling me for the interview Teachers in Puerto Rico earn a starting salary of about $1750 a month about $20,000 a year That's a really low salary for a full time credentialed teachers I've lived in Puerto Rico a very expensive place to live How do you and other teachers survive on that salary I've been receiving this day for ten years of a $1750 for ten years There are some teachers like me I do tutorials after school This year And then I'm also a legislator legislator And I get paid for that extra and it's $75 per session If you're married like me and I have two children you have to stretch the bill paid water which is highlight is getting higher And it's really tough And you have to have a person that knows how to budget and manage your money And thank God that I have my wife that she knows how to manage the money After teachers walked out of the classroom last week the governor Pedro Pierre luisi announced that the government had found money to give teachers a $1000 monthly raise That's more than 50% And yet the protests seem to only have grown since then I get the sense this is not just about salary The governor did say that there's going to be a raise of a $1000 but it's not really permanent We also want our care for our retirement fund Because right now there's teachers that will be losing a whole bunch of their percentage You're referring to some pretty big changes that are coming to the teacher's retirement system starting next month Teachers will no longer be working toward guaranteed pensions They're going to have to start contributing to 401k style plans That change is happening as the result of a deal to get Puerto Rico out of bankruptcy And I wonder whether you think that the government's struggles to pay you more to guarantee pensions whether they're understandable given Puerto Rico's economic situation It was understandable but with the deal that the legislators made and with the governor backing it's not helping Puerto Ricans We're going to be paying less and that But they're still could have been way more cut to the debt As I mentioned teachers have walked out of the classroom I imagine this is opposing a real hardship for families and students What are you hearing from them and when will teachers return to work We've been going to work So they're certain days that there's some teachers missing And then there's other teachers going to the school Today was that every all the teachers should be out The next day that we will be having the full strike it would be our next Friday the 18th of February And I've been sending messages to the parents to let them know that we will be on strike And the majority have been writing saying that they are a 100% backing us and that they understand our fight Let's process in drone and English teacher in Puerto Rico mister syndrome Thank you for joining us Thank you There's been a lot of diplomatic activity to try to avert a Russian invasion of Ukraine President Biden spoke today with the leaders of France and Saudi Arabia about the situation And France and Germany are trying to revive agreements that they negotiated 8 years ago when Russia first stirred up a conflict in eastern Ukraine But Russia and Ukraine interpret that deal differently as we hear now from NPR's diplomatic correspondent Michelle Kellerman French president Emmanuel Macron's visits to Moscow and Kyiv set off a debate of sorts between the Russian and Ukrainian presidents over the so called Minsk agreement of 2014 and 2015 Like it or not you have to put up with it my beauty Vladimir Putin said in what many recognized as an old Russian rhyme suggesting sexual assault Ukraine's president volodymyr zelensky certainly got the message responding in Russian the next day.

"We do those like a hundred and he's like blowing guys out and we just let him go late in the year. I think there's some frustration there. But i think that's the thing is the the leak the leaks they had all year the walks the inconsistent offense and the bullpen. That was counting too much. That was basically overusing cabrera and overusing race in and over using a guy goes that has been. That situation has generally gotten fixed now. This is not the best version of the cardinals check. Flirty is not fully healthy. Dakota hudson is back so pitching a little bit but those guys are clearly not there if you get flaherty at all on a theoretical playoffs would be. Maybe i would be surprised if flirty does anything in the playoffs At this point. So you're not at your at your best however this is the best possible cardinals team with the rest. They have right now and they have not been that team most of this year. That team is not as good as the dodgers even very dealer or they are they are not as good the dodgers but this has been the thing to this has been a big cardinals fans though fans. Who would you like. How do you want the dodgers giants rates to kind of work out. It's kind of remarkable to even be thinking about this question but In generally the idea has been was nobody wants to like the more games you play against the dodgers the more likely you are to that series like you'd like to the ideal world. They tie and they have to play on monday. What i think the general consensus. You'd rather play the dodgers in the wildcard game and take your one game chance with him. But they're not as good as either team but you now you see a path for them to be able to win those games or for a long time this year. That just wasn't really. Yeah well speaking of devil magic candidates you named a couple but there are a few others who may be fall into that bucket. We talked about and muno sosa the other day. And then you've got. Jose ron don who had some huge hits. You have newt bar. We have talked about mostly because he's named blue bar but he has also played pretty well and all. These guys fit into that cardinals. Category not stars and probably most people haven't heard of them but they just slop these players in whom you haven't heard of and maybe they play a bunch of positions just your generic infielder who has won ten ups plus plays defense and it always seems like the cardinals have a bottomless supply of those guys. So that's part of this. I guess if you wanna go looking for a justification for calling this cardinal hachik then that group would seem to fit into kind of the archetype. I don't i don't think the cardinals really get a lot of credit for that because you know a certain level. The only reason rondo and in new bar. Those guys are here is because justin williams didn't work lane thomas. They've been trying to force lane thomas to work forever. They finally got sick of it. Trade him for leicester lane. Thomas is going crazy in washington which is just bizarre in its own place like they try john gas. They trade austin dean. They tried scott scott. Scotty hearst whoever that is they like he was new bar with less much less interesting name and so it's not like new bars.

"Currently at the plate now too small sample size not striking out nearly as much. We've seen how he settled down the defense. He's among the league leaders defensively and metrics in center field but that has been a big addition quietly for this club. Yeah i think there is no doubt that any fancy watch games closely over the last forty five years when here baiters uses hope that he doesn't fish at those pitches that are down in a way and he's shown much better discipline this year titled neil as well very much in the same situation you know hitters knew how to get him out and now Bill betas doing a better job against right handed pitching. Which was the key for him. You know coming into this year. He's always had left pitching very well but he had to pitch right be credible enough against right handed pitching that they were comfortable to play every day. And you know again. A tiebreaker is clearly his defense he also very good on the basis. So you know. It's nice to see harrison baiter step up and and have a solid season. That really helps that bottom third of the lineup. Brian lynch jump into the minor leagues will start with memphis. What what's happening right now. With the memphis redbirds. Birds are are playing well in spurts. Pitching has been a little bit behind but we saw both the infielder. The veteran infielder as it were brought in this year. Maximum off and Jose ron don't play well drug and a lot of runs. Hit four home runs. Each was a little bit of a surprise. More i've got the call to come up. But he was much hotter at the time then then rondeau and went. Saint louis had an opening lars. Newt bar who's an outfielder that we haven't talked much about up from aa hitting over three hundred. Opiates over eight hundred winning doing a nice job as well and then counter capable who is also playing. Well so it's nice to see that the the the red birds have some some backup on the offensive side on the pitching side. The scandal clearly has been a matthew. Liberator is made three starts as your as a little bit high but he's been very consistent fourteen strikeouts and seventeen third innings only four walks and that thompson on the other hand has struggled a little bit more Especially with the ox in gave up three long balls already so thompson actually pitched in one game out of the bullpen as they're trying to figure out how to get get right but you know one of the things that we've looked at for saint louis left-handed hasn't been solid this year. In you know. I don't want to say that it's going to happen anytime soon. But if liberty keeps pitching like this you know he could be a guy that the cardinals could call on in the second half to to work out of the pen from the left side versus you going out and picking a picking up a guy scrappy. How are they doing it. Is it a piggyback system primarily with memphis in the rest of the minor leagues. No there must be running five man rotation and it's interesting because as we've talked about before a big change in the minor leagues. This year is a six game series. Every tuesday through sunday. So you know if you go with a regular five man rotation what happens is the same. Starting pitcher pitches game one and then again game six but generally speaking. The cardinals have gone with five man. There's a couple of cases where they're running with piggybacks down in class but overall they're going with more standard rotation now guys aren't pitching in deep into games partially because of the fact that most of them weren't pitching last summer but also as we get more and more information on metrics and all. It's much harder for pitchers pitch that third time through a lineup..

"You know how many major league teams could be potentially missing two starters and have guys of gannon and constantly step in for for alex specifically where you're going you know my my personal hope was one hundred innings. Maybe they start him you know in its high leverage bullpen role but if things go haywire in the middle of the season and you know more guys go down in the rotation. If you've got enough bullets left then you've maybe you start him in the second half of the system and season and you work him up toward that ultimate goal which is to pitch in the starting five in two thousand twenty two. Yeah that'd be interesting. If they do that what do you think about. Edmundo's sosa jose. Ron don't and john nagorski in some of these battles for that final spot Or two on the bench for the saint louis cardinals. Yeah you know really. The roster seems fairly set But the backup infielder position which of course vacated by brad miller who left who left the club is a free agent is an interesting one. Because jose ron don who's a wealth travel guy twenty seven years old. There's been multiple organizations. But he you know. Hit pretty well in triple a for the white sox last year. And if you look at the leaderboard of you know the cartilage camp this year you know. Ron donors right up near the top shown. Some good top driven and runs and good situations been able to take walks. came up originally as a shortstop but also very competent second base as well. And you know he has that proven more. Proven factor that edmund associate doesn't but of course if the cardinals put sauce on waivers And by the way says like one for eleven. I think this spring so it much hasn't had as much opportunity but he also hasn't done anything with it either so you know. The cardinals could decide to risk putting sosa on waivers and and see what happens and give the job. I don't i think if they have to break camp today. That's what would happen interesting. The rule changes that are are going to be used at different levels of the minor leagues. I'm open minded to this. I think we have to do this to engage the younger fan. Whether you're old school. they're not. This is just something that we have to do. Some of them..
