Just what we need. Layoffs, and utility bill hikes.
I love my change.

Here in Tuscarora School District we also love the 6% salary increases for teacher pay for the next 3 years too. Raises the local school board caved in for, just as the economy was going in the tank (but well after the news told us the national situation was becoming dire).

That translates into higher school property taxes too (most of their budget this year and next is salaries and cushy health care benes for their teacher union members).

So don't forget while the neighbors are being laid off, the teachers are doing just fine!!

Me, I love that kind of change too.
Sorry to hear that

I know what you mean Joe. All of our taxes are going up! Even the teachers.
Here's a thought, if work is slow, go back to college and get your degree. Then you can be a teacher, nurse, doctor, well you get the point.
Then you can join a professional union where there are educated people who know what it takes to make their own lives better instead of sitting around complaining and waiting for hand-outs from others.

You need money to go to school. So how is that going to work.
And, Teachers are over paid.

Oh well look at this way when theres is many empty homes in Tusc. district they have nobody to thank but themself. It takes m oney to pay the teachers and if my home along with many others are setting empty one day they will have to answer to the man upsairs why they made so many families homeless to have their pockets full.

I keep 3 refrigerators stocked full of cold beer at all times. These electric hikes make it harder and harder to maintain this. However, I understand that these things are natural.

I want my teachers to be well educated and well payed. I want hicks and thugs paddled in school. I want my beer ice cold. I don't ask for much in life.

You can thank ex-President Clinton for all this. He was the man when NAFTA and the outsourcing bill was signed. He was also the man when the Deregulation was enacted. God, isn't the Governement great!!! They just keep gettin' over on us. They are supposed to be looking out for us, not keeping us down.

Harry -- If things are bad now , wait till they start on the cap and tax bill again(climate change BS)...

Remember the obummer quote "I will bankrupt the coal industry", along with everybody else it seems!

Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade bill stuffed full of unpleasant surprises

May 22, 2009 Congress is considering the Waxman-Markey cap-and-trade legislation and guess what? It’s stuffed full of unpleasant surprises for the unwary. But thank goodness for the eagle-eyed folks at the American Energy Alliance, who spotted this little gem on page 781 of the mammoth 946-page bill:

“Title IV, Subtitle B, Part 2, Section 426, of the American Clean Energy and Security Act of 2009 states:‘An eligible worker (specifically, workers who lose their jobs as a result of this measure) may receive a climate change adjustment allowance under this subsection for a period of not longer than 156 weeks…80 percent of the monthly premium of any health insurance coverage…up to a maximum payment of $1,500 in relocation allowance…and job search expenses not exceed[ing]$1,500.’”

If cap-and-trade is an energy and global warming bill, why is a three-year package of unemployment benefits, job training and relocation expenses buried deep within its fine print?

Gee -- during a recession and as the unemployment rate approaches 10% nationally , higher in 14 states already, this seems to be a nutzo agenda pushed by the Obummer administration!!

By the time he's done everybody will be on the dole!! Except him of course!!

Change ?? You haven't seen anything yetr if he gets his way!

No matter what 'Facts' are posted, you deny them or find you version of 'facts'. Talking to you is like arguing with stars,. Interesting, but to no avail. Typical Repuklian!!
