Shameless JTA in bed with Gov't

I am shocked but not surprised that the Jamaica Teachers' Association has voted to accept the Government's latest wage offer. It is no secret that the powerful teachers' union has often found itself in bed with the People's National Party Government.

The relationship between both parties can be likened to a man who beats his wife every day, but gives her everything she needs. Second, such relationship is similar to the woman who says if my man does not beat me, he does not love me.

Since the return of the PNP Government to office, the teachers have been beaten with many stripes, but no love has been lost between them and the Government.
