    Unions should either a) be abolished or b) every state should be a "right to work" state. Let the individual choose weather to join a union or not..

    At minimum individuals should have the choice.....

    As far as I'm concerned labor unions have a monopoly on industries....

    It seems to me that the defricit is coming down. I'm sure we'll have plenty of immediate revision on this. I've been supporting Sen. Coburn's back-in-black plan since he published it in July of 2011.

    It took four years for me to get over $10,000 as a chem/physics teacher in the late 1970's. I averaged about 70-80 hours a week for the 40 weeks. We watched golden parachutes for admins for decades. Without the union, non-union workers wouldn't have their goodies either across the economy.

    Individuals should have the right to have the option....

    Unions are nothing more than a racket....

    Lets also not forget that teachers have an extended vacation in the summer - something individuals in other professions just don't get....

    It's no ones fault but your own for your pay-grade (of course if you're still teaching you're making $100,000+ today without question) - not to mention $10,000 went a lot further in the 70's than it does today.

    Of course when you start a job you have to work your way from the bottom up - it takes time to make those "big bucks" - usually companies, or I suppose in your case school districts wanted results - not demands...

    As far as I'm concerned any teacher that is motivated by the money has no business teaching.

    Only teachers in the rich Repup suburbs get $100,000, with those BOEs majorly responsible for the pension debt. I don't consider what T. Roosevelt did in stopping 9-YO miners with missing fingers and toes a "racket". Teachers are now being given assignments over summer. I'm glad I'm retired from your noise.

    I'm not familiar with that plan.

    Maybe those in the "rich repub" districts produce results?

    IMO, the teachers in poorer communities focus on "social justice" while the teachers in middle class and rich districts actually teach.

    Your average 7th grade student in my school district is more educated than the 12th grader in poor districts in Chicago.

    Also, if it matters - the "rich" (not middle class) districts are predominately democrat (at least where I live).

    The 6 collar counties have always been heavily Red. Try looking at the "95 poor conservative" downstate counties where teachers gut it out for one-third the "rich repup suburb" pay and quit playing the divisive chicago card. We know where that's going.

    90% of the rural US will be red...... It's the cities that are blue.

    which doesn't address the point I made--Are you willing to ignore your fellow Libertarian/TEAfolks out here in LaSalle county who make Half of the rich repup suburb teachers though their BOEs do not pay their fair share of the TRS public pension?
