    You know what is odd? I am a college dropout with 1 year of college. I have few singular skills other than a willingness to work. I have made more per year than Milwalkee schoolteachers. That strikes me as wrong.

    The one thing I know from our brief association on DP is that Redress is far, FAR from average. I know where you stand on this issue, though, and I respect that. We've been on the merry-go-round before.

    Me? No college at all. Started my own business at 19; ran it for 20 years; retired. Doesn't strike me at all odd that I make more than a Milwaukee school teacher.

    I was making my money in a factory, doing what is joking called unskilled labor. I worked alot of overtime to get 60k, but it was doable.

    Some day, I really believe that "unskilled labor" will be the highest paying job of all. My mother worked in a factory for 30 years. If I asked her, she would say she was "unskilled labor," worked on a frying pan line boxing up fry pans. I could have never done her job. Never!! I would have pecked myself bald-headed after a week.

    I had an occasion to watch professional movers one hot summer day for several hours. They worked like freaking dogs. Unskilled? Yes. Wearing out their bodies? You betcha'.

    Tom worked unskilled jobs--he's got bad knees, arthritis in his hands. Has deafness from noise on the factory floor. These are the real workers. Not desk jockeys. No. Not desk jockeys.

    Doesn't matter how much they are payed if it is needed, but if we get waiting lines for beeing a teacher then the wages should go down. Their wage should be dependant on supply and demand and not on what we think is fair, pay should be based on merit and bad teachers should be fired. In only that way we can ensure that teachers keep a high quality. Do you think a bad teacher deserve 100K USD dollars.

    Other states pay a lot less than Wisconsin and get enough qualified teachers. Also, if you compare with for instance social democratic Sweden who has a lot of problems like crime, but no budget deficit problem. Full time teachers in Sweden earn an average of 45000 USD dollars with compensations. Their take home pay after taxes and compensations are 26500 USD. However in "capitalist" America teachers earn 100K in average after compensation. It's just ridiculous.
