This has got to be sarcasm. If you believe in your kids education, then do it yourself or pay more taxes voluntarily, the rest of us might not be interested in this Ritalin-doped generation.

to Jon, in all seriousness, I believe if the levey gets passed, that yes everyone should pay taxes on it, not just property owners. I believe that Barberton landlords should raise their tentants rent in order to be able to pay the tax, therefor would mean that us renters would actually be paying our share. I was a homeowner for ten years and paid the levey taxes, i am now a renter. The comments above were sarcasim do to personal reasons twords the person who sarcastically created this post.

Emergency School Levey for Barberton school district to be voted on in November...know what your voting on: It is an operations only levey, which means it has nothing to to with building,tear down, or repairs of any of the schools. Operations means; to keep the staff members that they do have employeed and not have to cut staff back anymore than they already have had to do. NOT to give raises or hire more staff. The entire Barberton education staff took a voluntary pay cut for the next three years. If the levey does not pass, then staff will have to be cut back. We are already cut back enough. I for one care very much about my childrens education. I believe we need to keep the staff members that we do have in order to keep our children well educated. Many school districs in the county dont pass their leveys...that is sad. When their schools start falling apart, and their schools cant afford a cafateria or a library, or when their teachers go on strike, they will wish they had voted yes. GO BARBERTON!! Keep up the good work and vote yes to the emergency operations levey!!

1. Rent will go up, the cost is passed on to renters, if you were a landlord, you would know this.
2. This post was not really sarcasm, as it is a way to explore if people will take the money they get in tax deductions from claiming kids, and give it to the school district.

1. If this is an operations levy, then why are you claiming threats of schools crumbing?
2. Not taking raises is not a cut, if your cost of living goes up blame Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke.
3. There are alternative means of revenue, and ways to cut costs without impacting services.

What you are is shilling for the union. You won't put your money up unless you force us to as well.

Dawn is trying to argue that the rent that she pays should count as her contribution to the school district. How many non-working people use their welfare checks (taxpayers money) to pay the rent? Thus she is using our money, property owners, to pay the rent. Now, if she is receiving the benefit of food stamps for the household (once again, taxpayer money), this is starting to add up to a pretty hefty income for her. So, she is not using her own money to pay for anything, she is using our (property owners and taxpayers) money and trying to say that she is contributing to the cost of her children attending the schools. Now add to this income by giving her a child tax credit, which she is obviously not willing to donate to the school system where her children are also recieving free lunches (our money again). Girl, you do not have a rational point. Nothing from nothing is still leaving nothing.

Exactly, the property owner gets screwed in this round, unless they commit to continuous NO votes and throw out all incumbent pro-tax board members and replace them with anti-tax members.

For the union bosses, maybe!

How about negotiating for yourself, not using extortionist coercion, which is what union do. The union did not found the business, they took on only the risk of doing the work, which is often no longer as dangerous as it used to be.

I do recall a saying in the Old Testament that said not to steal, what is forcing someone to pay above market value called?

"negotiating for yourself"?

Ask the 10% unemployed how is that working for them?

The management signed the contracts with the unions, and the last time I saw, there was no extortion involved. Hyperbole.

Also, the CEO was able to get his MILLIONS of dollars of pay, while the company declared a LOSS....so who's doing the extortion? It's easy when the board is in your back pocket.

The only thing that is trying to save a living wage in this country are the unions.

Please read Mathew 19:24, "Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."

If you live in the Western world, you are at least a hundredfold richer than anyone in the third world, and richer than 99% of people throughout history.

The management was forced into recongnizing the union, as per the 1935 Wagner Act. Members who have no interest in being union members are forced to join or pay "fair share" unless they live in a right to work state.

The unions will threaten to shut down a company if they don't get what they want, and acts of sabotage are common during strikes, along with intimidation against replacement workers.

If the shareholders think the CEO is doing a bad job, they can vote the board of directors out, and replace the CEO, otherwise the CEO fairly earned their salary. If the shareholders are unhappy with the union, tough for them, because the unions have found out that they can collapse a company and end up owning it (GM and Chrysler).

And it is those same unions who have blocked the creation of thousands jobs that pay pretty well in Charleston, SC for Boeing.

If you want people getting middle class salaries for the USA, then they will need to be highly educated and motivated, otherwise an Asian making a fraction of your pay will get that job. You are not entitled to a good job, only to what you take.

Now you can whine about this, or you can invest some of your earnings into the stocks of businesses making money off this, which will reward you quite well. After all, the reason CEOs earn their keep is because of SHAREHOLDER VALUE, why not become a shareholder?
