    Or is this just your feeling?
    How about just the average wage for people in Wisconsin. Most people do not get free insurance and pension plan

    Maybe they should. How about a single payer system.



    Just saying . . . .

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    Do you have evidence that similarly educated people in the private sector are not paid more than those in the public sector?
    Why similar educated. Is that who is paying their wages. How about the average for the state they get paid from.

    yes...let's continue our race to the bottom. when salaries fall for public school teachers, they will fall for private school teachers. then who do you think will be standing in line to teach our children?

    That is complete deception on your part. Where is Walker saying to cut salaries?

    it's not deception. why would you think he'll stop with cutting benefits? this year, maybe, but what about the future? again, it seems republicans are intent upon destroying our middle class.

    You can speculate but that is all you do, what happens when a Democrat gets back in charge if you want to play those games. If you are so concerned about the teachers of Wisconsin, then move there and pay Wisconsin taxes.

    This reply has what to do with FUNDING ?
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    Could you support this with some evidence?

    There is no direct comparison to the private sector -- OH!!! Unless you want to use private [B]schools.And, historically, those salaries have been lower than those in public schools. So let's use those.
    Have they really been lower? Do you have some data to back that up?

    I'm sorry, but I'm not the type who listens to unsubstantiated opinion. Please provide some sources to your assertions aside from your anecdotal assumptions.
