A typical public school teach DOES receive a fair days pay for a fair days work. See my example above. If you think 66,000+/year is unfair for a 5-7 hour work day then you may want to re-evaluate your perception of fairness.<quoted text>
I would love to see a typical public school teacher receive a fair day's pay for a fair day's work without greedily envying what others have and constantly complaining "that's not fair!"
I don't see those that go to work for 8, 10, 12 hours a day 12 months a year in order to pay their property taxes so that those that choose to work 6-7 hours a day 180 days a year can get paid an equivalent of 66,000 a year as "greedily envying what others have and constantly complaing that's not fair!" What I see is that the majority of those that live in this community are tired of listening to teachers that have chosen a their 180 day work year complain that paying a fraction of what those that work 265 days to pay the teachers salaries for great benefits.
If a public union employee wants to talk "fairness" then pay 35% of your own family health care benefits, take no pay raises (steps included), have perks cut, cuts in retirement benefits, give up bonuses, to start...just as those in the private sector have been doing for many years...You know, those that work to pay the difference in the the health care benefits, in sick days, personal days, early retirements, step increase, COLA increase, bonuses.
