This is not a result of SB5! Why are you Thanking SB5?

This is a Result of "Collective Bargaining"!

FYI! All Federial Employees have taken "Pay Cuts!" (3 No Paid days off a Month)

"Thank you SB5"? You've got to be kidding. Nobody fears SB5 because it is clearly headed for repeal in November.

So, classified employees will be getting step increases?

Step increases are merely raises by another name.

Thank goodness, these high-salaried employees will be taking a pay freeze. What, are they making, maybe $30,000 a year? That amounts to a $20,000 pension when they retire. They are robbing us. SB5 is absolutely necessary to keep these workers from raping us, financially speaking....

Since SB5 was intoduced public awareness and opinions have led government employee unions to be more sensitive to the great deal they have. Unions realize they must be active participants now. I credit SB5 with heightening that attitude. You obviously don't.

I never said federal employees have not made any concessions. I said they didn't get any cost of living raises for the last 3 years.

You on the other hand change the subject and call me a liar. That is in the liberal handbook, page 3, item 6b as a standard way to debate. I am sure you are familiar with it since you must carry it around in your pocket.

Why would you purposely misrepresent what I clearly Wrote then call me a liar. If you can't debate the facts on what I wrote then it is you who is lying.

I didn't say anyone feared it. I simply believe that since SB5 was intoduced the unions are far more sensitive to the great compensation packages they have and the public opinion of same. They are now coming to the table with adjustments.

The most over-taxed district in the state! Until these teachers take a pay cut it won't be worth it. I live two houses down form a "teacher" in the system and really wonder why i am paying a tax premium for her. My dog could teach better than she could! In case you want to look it up these teachers are getting 70k+.
I want a great school system but this is as crazy as ronnie raygun. SB5 is crap but lets reform the rich school districts!
