Cham­plain work­ers spread fish

d’avril - to sym­bol­ize the ridicule of the Couil­lard gov­ern­ment’s hol­low prom­ises of pros­per­ity and dis­hon­est pro­pos­als to the public ser­vice em­ploy­ees. Hu­mor­ous, sar­cas­tic sen­tences are also writ­ten in­side each il­lus­tra­tion to mark our dis­con­tent to­ward the treat­ment re­served to col­lege teach­ers.

Each teacher is wel­come to wear the il­lus­tra­tion and to pin it on whomever feels skep­ti­cal about the na­ture of the ne­go­ti­a­tions. The SECCL also wants the whole pop­u­la­tion to be aware of the im­por­tance of a post­sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem re­spect­ful of its ded­i­cated work­ers.

cont'd o page San­ders said. “The re­al­ity is that the Amer­i­can mid­dle class has been shrink­ing steadily and there is noth­ing in here to ad­dress that. You can see that at a time of mas­sive in­come in­equal­ity, the Repub­li­cans be­lieve that a rich-get-richer ap­proach fits best. At a time when real un­em­ploy­ment is more than 11 per­cent, Repub­li­cans be­lieve that we should do noth­ing to cre­ate jobs or in­vest in in­fra­struc­ture.”

The bud­get fight marked the first time an In­de­pen­dent se­na­tor has led floor de­bate on be­half of the Demo­cratic cau­cus. San­ders’ amend­ments to im­prove the res­o­lu­tion opened the de­bate on Tues­day and were the first votes taken dur­ing the vota-a-rama ses­sion yes­ter­day.

San­ders spear­headed mid­dle class ef­forts on the fol­low­ing top­ics: In­creas­ing in­vest­ments in in­fra­struc­ture by closing off­shore tax loop­holes. Pre­vent­ing any cuts to Med­i­caid ben­e­fi­cia­ries. Hir­ing more health pro­fes­sion­als to as­sist Vet­er­ans (ap­proved on a bi-par­ti­san vote). Re­duc­ing emis­sions to fight cli­mate change. In­creas­ing the min­i­mum wage. Ear­lier last week, the House ap­proved a sim­i­lar bud­get res­o­lu­tion. In April, the House and Se­nate will meet to ne­go­ti­ate a com­pro­mise ver­sion of the bud­get res­o­lu­tion for the next fis­cal year and San­ders said he will press for more changes to the fi­nal ver­sion
