    So they have jobs on the side that aren't paid for by taxpayers? They keep that money separate to pay their union dues? Yea, that makes sense.

    You don't really have a point in any of this.
    Right out of the Economics 101 junior college text book. Too bad real life does not work that way.

    And I love how you make your point as a participant but then have to put on the referee uniform to announce that you are the winner. Humility anyone?

    Did you even read my post? The CEO makes a ratio of 2150:1. You are saying Wal-Mart cannot afford unions without raising prices?

    In almost all cases, CEOs get paid high salaries because they sucked enough cock above them to get it. Teachers don't get that kind of dough because too many of them waste their time caring about kids instead of sucking cock.

    Your choice, millions and millions of others choose differently and they go to Wal-Mart because of the lower prices.

    Cannot wait until you answer the question about where the money comes from that union workers "earn."

    OK.

    Average salary in the U.S. for a college graduate: $43,000 and average for a masters is $53,000.

    Source

    I'd say that falls well within the range of teachers, EXCEPT, when you figure the average hourly rate.

    In that case:

    Bachelors Degree:
    Teachers- $28.00/hour
    Non-Teachers- $20.67/hour

    Masters Degree:
    Teachers- $34.50/hour
    Non-teachers- $25.48/hour

    These numbers don't include benefits.
