VIDEO: Mike Rosen talks Denver teachers strike

Twenty-five year ago, 850 KOA radio host–and now Complete Colorado columnist–Mike Rosen crossed the picket line of striking Denver public school teachers, and taught a couple classes.  And he has plenty to say about the latest walk-out by unionized Denver teachers.  Mike took a hard look at the claim of underpaid teachers in his Complete Colorado column, and recently went on Jon Caldara’s Public affairs tv show, Devil’s Advocate (airs Friday nights at 8:30 on Colorado Public Television), to talk about the recently settled strike, including President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s admonition that a strike by public employees is both “unthinkable and intolerable.” Or as Rosen puts it: “They have no business striking; teachers in Denver, or anywhere else.” That video is available below.
