Over 400,000 students in Chicago Public Schools are not going to be in class today after the teachers went on strike. The third-largest school district in the country now has no teachers after 30,000 teachers and support staff decided that today was the day to walk away from the job. This is the first labor stoppage in the Chicago Public School system in 25 years.
Police are now stepping in to deal with a flood of unoccupied teens roaming the streets as a result of the strike. A city that is already plagued with violence is now going to see a spike in crime as teens with nothing to do find creative ways to fill their time.
