Chicago O’Hare workers to strike Tuesday.
Now that Betsy DeVos is set to be our next Secretary of Education, we have a few weeks to unpack some of her intriguing associations.
We already know the basics– DeVos is a rich patron of the GOP establishment, DeVos wants vouchers very badly, and DeVos wants tax dollars to flow freely to white Christian schools. If you want to (k)now what DeVos policies look like in practice, simply look at Detroit, where she has largely gotten her way.
DeVos money is used to support many organizations, some of which are already well-known, but some of which, like the Acton Institute, are not so familiar. But a look at the Acton Institute gives us a good look inside the DeVos mindset. Curmudgucation

Baggage handlers at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport have announced plans to go on strike next Tuesday, changing their original plan of striking on Thanksgiving. The move avoids a strike at one of the world’s busiest airports on one of the year’s busiest travel days. The Service Employees International Union is backing the workers, who want to raise their wages to $15 an hour. This comes as Germany’s main airline, Lufthansa, canceled nearly 900 flights today after pilots went on strike to demand a pay raise. Democracy Now!
