This raise for Boise politicians is very appropriate. They did their research and ensured that it was fair. We need better people in these positions. Compensation is an element of that. We want the best to be willing to sacrifice their time.

Teachers of English in college do not make as much as teachers in medical schools. So are the doctors are grossly overpaid?

If you are pro free enterprise, then you should have an understanding of supply and demand and pricing.
