Are you sitting in air conditioning to do your work? Can you imagine trying to do your work without airconditioning? I sure can’t.  I wilt in the heat.  My brain won’t work. How about you?

And yet our children and their teachers in sitting in unairconditioned school buildings trying to get an education. Here in Paterson, it’s back to the 19th century factory conditions.  Shades of 1912! If our children were working in those factory conditions, we’d be lobbying for changes in children’s work rules. Wouldn’t we?

Help us raise the issue [again]. Go to PEF’s Facebook page and post the temperature in your office at 10 am and noon. Go to PEF’s website and click on ACT to send a message to the governor and our legislators.

Sitting cool while our kids fry,
