    Well you know how those teachers like to lord their '93 Honda Acura's over us. What do you expect? Why shouldn't they be getting screwed like the rest of the middle class?

    I will have to backtrack on the 150k. Apparently those were the principal's of the school. However, this is straight salary for 9 months, not counting benefits.

    Salary: $45,801
    Position: Elementary Teacher
    Full/Part Time: Fulltime
    Years Teaching: 2


    Position: Elementary Teacher
    Years Teaching: 15
    Full/Part Time: Fulltime
    Salary: $80,369

    Salary: $104,066
    Position: Elementary Teacher
    Full/Part Time: Fulltime
    Years Teaching: 34
    At the very least you had the decency to backtrack rather than continue to defend an indefensible position. Very honourable.

    Just one other pointer, there is at least 13 years progression from 46K to 81K and a further 19 years to 104K, hardly "short times".

    Lol, nice one.

    Why aren't the rest of the damned middle class sticking up for themselves as well rather than sucking up this BS. That is what I would ask.

    Not from me. To me, I simply despise having to pay such a large portion of my property tax bill in order to fund bloated pensions, benefits and salaries that were negotiated between a teacher's union and a sympathetic opponent. Out of my 5k prop tax bill, a tad less then 3,500 goes to fund the local schools.

    I've been at my company 15 years - trust me, it's a short time. and I didn't say short time, I said "give it a bit".

    in my OP on this subject, I tried to take the career progession. new teacher, half way through career and near retirement. I think that was very fair.

    Many are still waiting for Reaganomics to trickle down on them. Its only been 30 years, these things take time..................

    1 in 7 Americans being poor in 2009 not enough sacrifice for you. It wouldn't occur to you to look at the gains made by the super rich at our expense, would it?

    So, why did anyone think it was a good idea to kill jobs?
