    But this has NOTHING to do with corporate matters.
    The Koch brothers were the largest campaign donor in Wisconsin. They gave the maximum amount to Walker's campaign. And, his lap dog conversation that was taped showed us who's side he is on. He also has budgeted about the same amount in tax cuts to corporations as the amount he wants to cut from the education budget. So, to say this issue has nothing to do with corporate matters seems a little naieve.


    This has everything to do with teachers unions greed and arrogance. Their mafia-like tactics are hopefully coming to an end.
    Are you talking about how they negotiate with their employers for the compensation for their services and the material needs of their students? How horrible!!!

    When I went to Salary.com Salary Wizard™- Do you know what you're worth? with a Milwaukee zip I found:

    Averages for 53219, Milwaukee, WI
    Teacher Elementary School

    Core Compensation Median
    Base Salary $52,453
    Bonuses $0
    Social Security $4,013
    401K/403B $0
    Disability $0
    Healthcare $0
    Pension $0
    Time Off $0
    Total Compensation $56,466

    I'm sure there will be those that think $56,000 is too much as well. I actully had one person suggest that education should be a matter of charity that one could support or not.

Nearly every year in Illinois suburbs there were teacher strikes. Every damn year THEY got raises. If they actually WORKED 12 months out of the year their salary not including benefits would be on AVERAGE $98,000!!! No teacher is worth that. I could possibly see the most senior of supervisors but not a teacher. These people have to stop their greed! The private sector has taken major hits in the last few years and THEY are to support EXTEMELY unrealistic salaries in the public sector?? HELL NO!!!!

    I think those people ought to be ashamed of themselves for bringing in people with Downs Syndrome to hold their signs for them.

    Someone made a pretty poignant point...its not wrong for people to ask for what the market will bear with regard to fair compensation. However...there may come a time when the market will no longer sustain what it previously bore. At that point there has to be either layoffs or salary/compensation cuts. Just the way it is.

    Average Total Yearly Compensation For Milwaukee Teachers: $101,000 Here's where the $101,000 came from. I would not readily accept it as fact.

    Yours neither, as Milwaukee teachers do not pay into social security and, of course, they all receive healthcare benefits.

    Edit: Here's a link re $101,000 that you can take to the bank: http://www.politifact.com/wisconsin/...-salary-and-b/

    The posting quoted MPSí budget manager as saying that in 2011-2012 (the fiscal year that begins July 1, 2011), the average MPS teacher would receive total compensation of $101,091 -- $59,500 in salary and $41,591 in benefits. We double-checked with MPS spokeswoman Roseann St. Aubin and she confirmed the figures.

    Yes I hate both sides equally but I appreciate your tax info!
    If I knew he was going to repeal the rights of state unions I would have chipped in too. I hate...... HAAAATE state unions. They are evil.

    And these "negotiation" tactics you mention? They should have no right to stop work to squeeze other people out of their tax dollars. They Strike..... they should be fired. They need to join what is called reality. Unions are the Charlie Sheen of the work force

    Salary.com didnít indicate that SS was paid by the employee, but was a part of the compensation package. Sorry I wasnít quite clear.
    I have more trust in since it is a pay for info site that does all professions in most US locations.
    Just looking for the correct answer.

    You have more trust in salary.com than the link I provided? I just don't know what to say. Neither Milwaukee public school teachers nor their employers pay into the social security system. Every Milwaukee public school teacher has healthcare benefits. The link is wrong. If that's the way you look for correct answers, you are, and will remain, very uninformed.

    Collective bargaining which is conducted with taxpayer represenatives is an alternative to strikes.

    Since when do we let the poorly educated determine the pay of the educated? If we do that, retail sales staff with little or no education beyond HS will hamstring education.
    It there are no incentives to get an education, we will all end up stoopid....working for slave wages under the thumbs of the few who educated themselves...
