Look at What Aramark Thinks is a Proper School Lunch PDF Print E-mail

What seems wrong about this photo from a elementary school in Houston Texas.

Well, lets start with the lunch tray. No vegetables, no milk, no nothing but a order of greasy nachos and two cups of sugar, food coloring and ice.

Has this become the all American lunch that will fortify our children for the educational battle with workers of the world or just a profit machine for Aramark, the private company, that's making profits on the stomachs of our children?  You wonder why diabetes is running wild in HISD as Rome burns. Maybe fiddle music should be playing as we view this lunch.

Dallas County Crossing Guards Fighting for Pay Raise PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 04 April 2013 01:07

3/25/13

Dallas Crossing Guards met Saturday, 3/23 to come up with a pay raise demand for the Dallas County Schools budget committee meeting. Crossing Guards in Dallas were City of Dallas employees and part of the Dallas Police Department until they were trannsferred to Dallas County Schools a few months ago. Dallas County Schools is a County school district that provides support services and Transportation services to School Districts in Dallas County.

As city employees, they were able to draw unemployment during the summer but they lost the ability to do that when they were transferred because they became School Districts employees

Replacing that lost income, which amounts to 94 cents per hour, is a major issue. Rasheed Rashad pointed out that they had been promised $9.63 when they came to Dallas County Schools and had the documentation to prove it. So the calculation was simple. $9.63+$ .94= $10.57. The first Budget committee meeting will be April 11th, the next one is in June and the Budget has to be finished by July. Crossing Guards are justified in asking for a $2.24 per hour raise and are determined to get what they deserve.

Pictured are Anne Kail on the left, Rasheed Rashad in the middle and Lola Hollins on the right.

Internet Essentials

Comcast promised to make low cost Internet service available to kids at Head Start and on free lunch at school. With over 500,000 children qualified in the Houston area, less that 1% have been enrolled by Comcast in over two years.

Local 100 is demanding the following

• Comcast to set a goal of 250,000 children enrolled by 2016

• Require Comcast to greatly increase its direct outreach to children's families

• Require public disclosure of the number of customers of Internet Essentials since 2011 by zip code

Join the fight to make Comcast do right
