"Back to the third program on the line with us right now is j o Neal. He's a middle school teacher in Charleston West Virginia a member of the West Virginia Education Association. He's founder of the West Virginia United caucus and created the West Virginia, public employees United Facebook group, which served as a catalyst and organizing hub for the West Virginia. Teachers and service personnel strike of twenty eighteen which pretty high profile the website WBZ, as in West Virginia WB United caucus dot org. And the Twitter handle is caucus. Wwltv v J welcome to the program. Hey, thanks so much for having me. Thanks. Thanks for joining us. It's, it's always great talking to a teacher to it's yeah. You you're doing God's work. So tell us about how ever tell us about the challenge of the struggle right now that West Virginia. Teachers are facing relative to the Republican party in that state. Yeah. You know, whereas or is this not partisan? No, mostly partisan. Okay. It's kind of like The Empire Strikes back. You know, we had a huge teacher strike in two thousand eighteen and then this year, they really came after us, we'll want to six states that currently does not have charter schools, and they are pushing school privatization, and charters and things very hard here right now that makes a lot of sense. So how how, how are they going after you beyond that, or is that enough? No, that's enough. No. They're doing other things. They tried to get laws passed that would weaken things. Like, Arsenio already, they tried to attack our unions with a paycheck protection law, which is just union busting tactics. They tried to put in kind of an anti-strike clause. And, you know, firing teachers go on strike all that stuff, so Nargess privatization, they're, they're going after directly twelve right with, with the charter schools in a what's, what's your understanding and experience and knowledge about charter schools versus public schools. And why would they Republican party be pushing them so hard and West Virginia? Yeah. I mean so my basic view is that they're former privatization, you know, you somebody could set up a it would technically be nonprofit and apply for charter to have the school in that. And that sounds really nice. But the problem is in these prophets contract out all the school services usually two four profit company. So, you know, for transportation for food, and even for the management of the school nationwide. Now we have these things called EM owes education, management organization. There's chains of them, and therefore prophet, and they just demanded schools, and they're literally making money, off our kids. Wow, amazing. So what are teachers in West Virginia doing a response to this? What are you doing response to this? We're talking to j o Neil middle. Schoolteacher in Charleston, West Virginia and a member of the West Virginia Education Association. So back in February. They were trying to push through a Bill very quickly like this. We actually went on strike statewide again for two days in order to kill the Bill. Well, that wasn't good enough for them. So they call the special session that summer and unfortunately, the Bill now just house their house delegates in the summer of Harper. Teachers go on strike during the summer. So we've done all the normal things they tell you to do you know we've called delegates, we Email we've, we've lobbied we've met with them. They had education forms across the state and actually eight percent of the people that attended that. No charter no education savings accounts. No privatization, and yet still the ramming it through. So, you know, we're trying to regroup we're trying to figure out new strategies tactics to use but it's a real fight here amazing. So I'm assuming if somebody wants to know what's going on in West Virginia, or who wants to pitch in and help out some way. Particularly if they live in West Virginia w v United caucus dot org is the web site. Yeah. That's a great place to start. And then you can catch us on Twitter and Facebook as well links from there. Okay. And for, for Facebook, what would they search on? I think it's caucus, WTI caucus WVU carcass WB, I know is the Twitter handle. So same thing for Facebook. Jay. I wish the very best. Would you keep us up to date on how it goes? Definitely for sure. Okay. Thanks a lot. Jay o Neil with, with the West Virginia Education Association and was West Virginia public employees in knighted. Great conversation. Thank you. Appreciate it. John and Morris Illinois. John, what's on your mind today? I just say we need to take Burt get get a bird two birds with one stone. We gotta push for impeachment. We gotta push for impeachment now because that way, we can expose even if it doesn't get passed the Senate, we can expose all the allies. Senate uses takedown Mitch the pitch and put Bill. I'm sorry, John, where I get it that you're upset. And you want to, you know, but I just don't want to don't want to be using that kind of language Jesse in Bothell Washington, Jessie. What's on your mind today? Anytime. Thank you for taking my call earlier. Gentlemen. Suggested that video be made of the Miller report. Yeah. And well let them know and all your listeners out there. It has been done. PBS did a summary of the Muller reports. It's on PBS NewsHour posted on YouTube about three three days ago, and it's titled all of the Muller reports major findings in less than thirty minutes on the reporters do a great job, summarizing both all in one and volume to a good summary of all the instances of Trump's obstruction of Justice. And after you watch it, the viewer can see the conclusion clears day Trump must be impeached for high crimes and misdemeanors. So, yeah, please, go to PBS were find it on YouTube, and it's just a nice summary of the Miller report, I get. And, and in fact, I a couple of he'll tweeted that to me, I'm going to have. Have to look at it after the air today, because I'm heading down to LA this afternoon. But I will definitely check it out, Jesse. Thank you for the call. It's great to hear from Michael, and winter, haven, Florida. Hey, Michael, what's on your mind today? I Don I was I kind of agree with the caller, they called earlier. But I don't I won't eat language. Thank you. Free. Okay. I mean these the language but to go off on, on McConnell. Go for it. Utah, f- a not long ago about impeaching Mitch McConnell, and I was thinking about the impeachment process, where the house brings to charges, and then they send it over to the and it can make McConnell, not being that to the floor. And he decided not to know. He has my understanding is that he asked to hold a vote. Okay. But, but here's the thing that a majority vote. It only takes a majority vote in the house to impeach. In other words, to indict somebody, but to actually convict him, and remove him from office, that takes two thirds vote that takes us through thirds vote in the Senate. So there's going to have to be I don't I don't recall, the exact number, but it would be something on the order of fifteen Republicans are going to have to jump on this thing. So that's pretty big lift. No, he can't start to the best buy knowledge. Yeah, you're walking. Thanks a lot. Sam. Good to hear excuse me. Michael, good to hear from you Sam in waynesville North Carolina. Sam what's on your mind today? Yes. You know, maybe I'm live at different. I don't talk about him patron or anything like that. But I would like to talk about the Iran situation in yes, that's going on. Now. You know, I thought to Trump was supposed to be peaceful president, you know, but hate surrounded himself with a bunch of, you know, they talked about draining the swamp. Yeah. And he got sloppier. It's now he's got he's got a bunch of corrupt billionaires in his cabinet. I mean it's bizarre. It sure is. And, and that's all that since he's been in our. That's how they talked about is war, war war, and, and that's all you hear and, you know, for the money that they spend on way up and they can help out with healthcare. And that's just my opinion. Yeah, I very well said Sam Sam, thanks a lot for the call. And thanks for watching. I'm with you. We have our speaking of YouTube, we have our YouTube poll are subscriber poll and thirty one hundred votes will Trump use the Gulf of Oman. That's the drone that was shot down. Will he use that as a pretext for an illegal war, and thirty one hundred votes? Eighty six percent of you said, yes, he will ten percent said, no. He won't four percent said, I couldn't care less. Here are some of the and, and, and I ask you, I mean, how do you do a do you think that Trump is spoiling for a war, or is this all? Boltman. Peyot. And if he wants a war, does he not want the war? Now, does he want the work closer to the election that the deal because, you know, he kept tweeting that, that Obama was going to have a war with Iran, so he could get himself, reelected? So obviously, he has thought this way, yet, he campaigned on, you know, no more stupid wars. In fact, he trashed, George W Bush, which was supposed to be Republican heresy. You think he's gonna pull it off? Do you think that it'll work? I'm I don't know. Can you know who's going to stop World War three? I think this is a really good question reparations, we've been talking about reparations, by the way, I just wanted to bring that back up your thoughts on on what how how we should do this, or how, we could do this. But anyhow, the question will Trump use the Gulf of Oman as a pretext for an illegal war? Some of the top comments Rebecca said he wants a war. That's why he hired Bolton award to distract miss crimes. See, I'm not sure if that's true. I think he hired Bolton because he's an idiot that Trump just doesn't you know he. It doesn't dig deep enough to understand who the people are that he's putting in these positions. And that's why he keeps putting people in these jobs, who have all these scandals are so subject to blackmail and all kinds of other things, Michael Hart. And he says he will have a war, if he can Jennifer Delaney says absolutely Mike Pompeii was always up for a war. And so is the mainstream media, while the mainstream media, you've absolutely got that, right? I mean, you know, war, for example, the, the first Gulf war made wolf Blitzer career, which is not to say wolf Blitzer some kind of warmonger, but, you know, that war people get promoted much more rapidly in the military and in the media during time of war. It's very simple. Straightforward stuff. Gilmer said they lied to us about the Lusitania to start World War One. They lied to us about the Gulf of talking to start the Vietnam war. They lied about Saddam's weapons of mass destruction to stop the Iraq war. They lied about chemical attacks to keep bombing Syria. Do you really think we shouldn't be suspicious when oil tankers are attacked, and they blame Iran? But then Brock Collins says no Trump's base will not let him engage.

"When we continue to invest in education. Our children are the winters and our children are the one who prosper from all this that. That's why it's so important what they're doing in LA and we've done all across the country. I remember talking to you last year. And we we talked about how the average pay of a West Virginia teacher was around forty five thousand dollars which was thirteen to fifteen thousand dollars lower than the national average in one of the issues that you're facing in West Virginia is that teachers just needed to drive over state lines to other states, and they'd get paid considerably more. And so there was a shortage of certified teachers in West Virginia has has that situation gotten better where we still have a shortage. It's going to take more than just a one year employee of two thousand dollars to to help that but we are seeing more rare younger teachers very interested in staying in West Virginia now, and if we continue that investment this year that should be another five percent pay raise coming in front of him. We will have moved beginning teachers salaries from thirty three thousand two over thirty seven thousand in two years, and and that will help us be competitive with their contiguous states. We're more. Concerned with their contiguous states than we are the national average because we are such a we were bordered by five different states, and they can go across the border and make more money. This makes us competitive with them. But it sounds like overall that a year after the strike from last year, the situation is improving in West Virginia. So so daily let me ask you that was the catalyst really that's sort of unleashed. This big movement across America, we saw teacher strikes, and so many other places and now the giant district in Los Angeles. I mean looking across this past year. Did you think that this is what he'd spark from what your action in West Virginia you when you make that courageous step to step out of the classroom? You don't think about the what it's going to do nationally as we've had time to reflect we are very proud of the fact that we have led the movement from West Virginia. We're look at an different light as educators in West Virginia. Now, people look at us more with with respect and admiration for what we've done, and like I said at the end of the strike with the interview with you. I would hope that other states and governments learned from this. Apparently, they haven't that that we have to continue this. When are we going to make education a top priority win? Are we going to make educating all of our children, not just a select few? But all of our children are our number one goal in this country and fund education like it should be funded. Well, daily president of the West Virginia Education Association. He helped lead last year's teachers strike in West Virginia. Speaking to us once again from Charleston today daily, thanks so much for coming back and giving us this check in on how teachers and schools are doing in West Virginia. Thanks so much. And we wanted to teachers in LA now that West Virginia fully supports them and their endeavors. Well, thanks again.

Thank you so much and Nick Melvoin vice president of the Los Angeles unified school district board of education, Nick. Melvoin. Thank you as well. Thank you, and thanks to Gloria and her colleagues for for awakening the conscious of LA to this. Okay. So that is longtime coming that's the situation in Los Angeles right now. And as I mentioned in February and March of last year teachers across the entire state of West Virginia went on strike in response. To chronically low pay and high healthcare costs there. It was the first in what became a wave of teachers strikes. We saw them in Oklahoma, and Colorado, Arizona and other places last year. And in March at the end of what was a successful strike. We spoke with Dale Lee, president of the West Virginia Education Association about what he hoped would happen next. Learn from West Virginia is is that they're governors and legislators will do the right thing and make the investment in education. Now before it gets to the point where we had to what we had to do in West Virginia since it has been a year since the West Virginia strike, let's check in with daily. He joins us now from Charleston, West Virginia daily, welcome back to the program. Thank you for having me. It's great to have you back. So it's been a year since the historic strike in West Virginia have have conditions improved for teachers there. Well, they have we have our governor announced and early October that we were continuing investment in education with an another five percent increase in pay for AllState employees for educators for teachers service professionals and remember healthcare was a huge issue for us. And he was putting another one hundred million dollars into our healthcare at the end of the strike last year. We created a task force to look at healthcare. To really come up with long-term solutions. The task force continues. We've made some really good recommendations we're waiting on the legislature to pass those recommendations from the task force at this point. But we are making progress, but just as as was said earlier, you have to continue the investment, you don't make a one time investment in the future of your kids. You make a continued investment. And.
