The United Teachers Los Angeles, the powerful school teachers union, is out in force this afternoon throughout the city protesting LAUSD budget cuts this afternoon. They say school bureaucrats are looking to cut healthcare benefits, raise class sizes and impose a three-year salary freeze. Therefore, they will chant in the streets:

WHO’S GOT THE POWER?
WE’VE GOT THE POWER!
WHAT KIND OF POWER?
UNION POWER!
WHAT KIND OF POWER?
TEACHER POWER!
