    Painfully, hilariously true, even more so than back in the 80s.

    I’m having trouble believing that a city garbage collector makes that much more than a teacher…then or now.

    Where I live, teachers got it made… Good pay, 3 months off in the summer. Yet they still complain.

    Teachers always complain – you can tell if an aeroplane at the terminal building is full of teachers as even when the jet engines are shut down the loud whining continues….

    Unless you’re a teacher, you have NO idea just how much they deal with and how truly underpaid they are!
    Walk a mile in their shoes before you criticize someone…

    conservatives say that teachers are a drain on society. that they cost too much. that they are overpaid, over-privileged. that they are scum. that they are the reason for budget deficits at local governments.

    Mark of ignorance: misuse of “teabagger.” Errata, that should be Omnius of ignorance.

    People paid by the public have an outsized sense of entitlement to the monies of others. One will never hear a conservative challenge the pay of one not receiving taxpayer funds. And no conservative will ever applaud taxpayer funding of any job that could be performed by the private sector. In contrast, leftists are so consumed with envy that they think they should set the pay for all in the private sector. And reward themselves the most for telling us how to live our lives.

    The Teachers Union has helped to elevate average teacher pay somewhat over recent years, but teachers and law enforcement (all first responders. actually) are amongst the lowest paid “professional” positions in the American economy, and pretty much always have been.

    Can you think of two sets of jobs more essential to the present safety, stability and future of our national society than educators and first responders (guardians of life, liberty, security and property)…I can’t.
    Now think about the income (including perks) of lawyers, politicians, judges, elected officials, bankers, entertainment and sports figures, executives in ANY successful industry, hospital administrators, pharmaceutical mfg.,and even doctors – what do you see?
    For the most part – a lot of waste – ESPECIALLY in government jobs, which are growing every day (about the only part of our economy that IS growing in employment). The people upon whose backs and performance the real future of this country rests are not paid according to the critical importance of their roles in our culture. If the next generation is not properly educated, what is to become of our nation? – Do we want to live the consequences of that?
    Conversely, for many (not all) of those who make more negligible contributions to the quality, stability and future of American life, the rewards seem to be quite out of proportion with their roles.
    I’m not preaching ‘wealth distribution’, as I firmly believe in good pay for good work, and the free enterprise system. But multi-billion-dollar CEOs, sports an’ entertainment stars, even some politicians an’ judges are a disgrace in a struggling economy.

    He should economize, like using fabric instead of single use plastic ribbons in his Selectric. Typewriter ribbons are even more expensive and scarce now.

    The Kids get 3 months off,teachers don’t. They take classes, prepare for the next school year and generally get paid much less than someone else with the same college degree.
