Thousands of Denver public school teachers go on strike in fight for higher pay – ABC News

Denver public school teachers left their classrooms and formed picket lines.

Thousands of public school teachers in Denver walked off their jobs on Monday and formed picket lines for the first time in 25 years to demand higher wages and stem the tide of educators they say are going to neighboring school districts to boost their pay.

Members of the Denver Classroom Teachers Association wearing “Red for Ed” T-shirts under or over bulky jackets kicked off their strike at 7 a.m. local time, forming picket lines around schools in the bone-chilling 21-degree weather and chanting, “If they won’t pay us, shut it down.”
