You may have read about it or even seen it on the news - March 13, 2009, aka "Pink Friday," the day teachers gathered to protest the pink slips many are receiving because of layoffs brought about by the faltering economy.
It is indeed unfortunate that many have to lose their jobs like that - good teachers are hard to find. Of course if any bad teachers got the ax, then fine. Their union makes no distinction between the two so I imagine it was a roll of the dice as to whether it was a good one or bad one that got let go.
Anyway, the wine industry is having its own Pink Friday this coming March 20, 2009. It is a day to pop open a bottle of white zinfandel because that's pretty much all we can afford these days until the economy improves.
So remember: this Friday March 20 is Pink Friday for the wine folks.
