A right to work for less money

Wisconsin GOP Gov. Scout Walker declared war on the middle class working folks and almost got thrown out of office, the rich saved him.

Indiana GOP Gov. Mitch Daniels saw how Walker won and declared war on the middle class working folks and won.

Michigan GOP Gov. Rick Snyder saw how they won and lied to the people and did an about-face and declared war on the middle class working folks and won.

On Dec. 7,1941 Japanese Admiral Isorku Yamanoku declared war and won temporarily, and he said we awoke a sleeping giant.

I have been a union member all my working life and still am even in retirement.

I have seen employers mistreat workers in non-union companies. I also know how unions take advantage of spineless companies.

Collective bargaining is a answer and it is dead for now. Wake up American workers.

As our president said, what they’re talking about is giving you the right to work for less money. I add also with less safety and poorer working conditions.

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?

I think it’s a good idea to feed all the students free of charge
I think those who can afford it should pay for their school meals
I think all students should be required to pay for their school meals
