Kristi Lacroix says she has been laughed at, screamed at and spit on – all because of her vocal support of Wisconsin’s controversial limits on collective bargaining and her vehement disdain of public employee unions.
The veteran English teacher at Lakeview Technology Academy, a public choice school in the Kenosha United School District, still, against her will, pays $108 every month, her Fair Share payer fee of union dues to the Kenosha Education Association.
This despite the reforms of Act 10, the Gov. Scott Walker-led law that gutted collective bargaining privileges for most unionized public workers in the state. The constitutionally disputed act allows teachers like Lacroix to opt out of union membership and their dues.
