To make matters worse, some schools have even closed or significantly reduced their IEP's.

A friend of mine in NYC who taught at the University of New York Wink Wink Wink said that last year (or was it the year before) the school basically said that there are too many students in ESL classes and that if the students have been accepted to UNY, they should be exempt from taking Eng courses.

So in a matter of just one semester, the IEP, despite climbing enrollment numbers for the school in general (domestic and overseas), lost over 40% of its students and had to let teachers go and stop hiring. Luckily for some teachers who have been there for a while, the school offered them buyout packages equivalent to two semesters' worth of salary (~$40k-50k depending on how many classes one teaches) because the school is unionized.

Another reason why organized labor is supremely important. Despite their flaws, they do raise the overall salaries and do offer concrete protections. Say what you will about the free market, but when creative destruction comes for you, you bet your ass that you will become a socialist just like that.
