>> Teachers in Arizona and Colorado walked off the job and marched to their respective state capitals for a second day of protests.>> The rallies coming after a sea of red flooded Phoenix and Denver just a day earlier.>> In Arizona at least 50,000 teachers took to the streets in nearly 100 degree heat Thursday, leaving over a million students out of school.
Some teachers are saying they're in it for the long haul.>> It breaks my heart like I said.>> We wanna be back tomorrow?>> Yeah, if I could be back tomorrow I would. But I'm gonna try to hang in for these guys.>> In a state where teachers' salaries are among the lowest in the nation, teachers are demanding a 20% pay increase.
Plus they want more money going into classrooms, and no new tax cuts.>> Are we gonna take it?>> No.>> Arizona Governor Doug Ducey has said he'll give them a 20% raise, but over three years. That's not enough for these desperate teachers who are striking to heighten the pressure.
The walk outs come after similar protests in West Virginia, Oklahoma, and Kentucky. All part of an educator movement which shows no sign of slowing down.
