I know because I work in the district, and YES we can't afford all of the benefits you have. I live in Utica,work in Utica, pay taxes inUtica and I can't afford your pension any more.

Teachers' hefty salaries are driving up taxes, and they only work 9 or 10 months a year! It's time we put thing in perspective and pay them for what they do - babysit! We can get that for minimum wage. That's right. Let's give them $3.00 an hour and only the hours they worked; not any of that silly planning time, or any time they spend before or after school. That ...would be $19.50 a day (7:45 to......... 3:00 PM with 45 min. off for lunch and plan-- that equals 6 1/2 hours). Each parent should pay $19.50 a day for these teachers to baby-sit their children. Now how many students do they teach in a day...maybe 30? So that's $19.50 x 30 =$585.00 a day. However, remember they only work 180 days a year!!! I am not going to pay them for any vacations. LET'S SEE.... That's $585 X 180=$105,300 per year.(Hold on! My calculator needs new batteries).What about those special education teachers and the ones with Master's degrees? Well, we could pay them minimum wage ($7.75), and just to be fair, round it off to $8.00 an hour. That would be $8 X 6 1/2 hours X 30 children X 180 days =$280,800 per year. Wait a minute -- there's something wrong here! There sure is!

The average teacher's salary (nation wide) is $50,000.$50,000/180 days =$277.77/per day/30 students=$9.25/6.5 hours =$1.42 per hour per student--a very inexpensive baby-sitter and they even EDUCATE your kids!) WHAT A DEAL!!!!

That is only, and only if you own yor babysitting busines. You are then responsible for much more, plus you dont have health insurance, sick days or retirement benefits. Go ahead my dear open up that day care now.

I am sick of you teachers pointing out all the time about your education. Do you think only your profession is requiring an education???
You work hard, you earn good money, you deserve it.... like many others.
The thing is, we, the taxpayers of Utica can not afford your benefits any more. We can not support and pay any more your health insurance when you retire.Especially when many of you don't even add to our tax base. You live elsewhere but want us, Uticans, to pay for you. I can't any more, you cost us way too much.
