  1. This is a really terrific idea.
    Though to be realistic, the principal should swoop in and crush these nascent businesses because they don’t pay a living wage nor offer health insurance to their employees. Then, should the business owners complain, the principal could (in demagogue fashion) at an all school assembly point out that businesses should have their political free speech restricted.

  2. I would offer my Union knowledge and legal services to any of the TREP$ workers/students as they unionize.
    Because only Union protection can insure that they are treated fairly by the bosses.
