The author talks about the hostility between the Nevada State Education Association teachers union and Culinary Local 226, a private-sector union in Southern Nevada. The author states that economics is at the root of the conflict between the two unions. The author notes that teachers union bosses push the hotel room tax rate up to 13 percent. According to the author, Culinary would be entirely justified in attending the needs of their own families, rather than to the association bosses.
