    Absolutely. No police officer is worth 50k.

    If anyone should have their wages bumped up, it is Nurses and Teachers.
    And Pizza Delivery and Store Clerks. I feel when there is danger involved? You should make a lot more.

Plus its VERy difficult to get fired from these positions. They are way over paid currently especially the teachers and especially the firemen. We've been on this topic before. Now... the military are underpaid. But to say that those jobs are the FOUNDATION of society is just not even close to true. They are doing a job. Thats it. Its a job. YOu have your job and these guys have their job. Right now they are the foundation of sucking up all our tax money.

    No. Without people doing these jobs, society breaks down. Imagine your life without the police (anarchy), firemen (urban destruction), and teachers (illiteracy). Perhaps these jobs are sought after because there is some personal prestige that goes with them. So, yes, these jobs are the foundations of society. I would agree, that the military would be included in that group, also.

    Then with that logic you could say the same about Farmers. Now THOSE people have hard jobs! They deserve much more money than teachers.
    Look out of the police, fireguys and teachers, to me they are like union works at an auto plant. They are VERY replaceable. And there are MANY people that would love to have their jobs. Is the jobs they do important for society? Yes. Are they jobs hard? Not really. Can the majority of people in America do those jobs? Yup. Just like the folks in Waste Reclamation. The jobs are required for todays society..... but it doesnt mean they should get paid crazy money either. No pensions. No 100% free health care. In Illinois these people are so far over paid it makes me ill to think about it.

    Nope. Those jobs require a hell of a lot of training. They are replacable only with that training. And, they deserve full health care and pensions for the service that they do to society... keeping it functioning. You in no way refuted anything I said in as far as their importance. It makes me sick to hear people degrade these types of professionals.

    No way man. I'll give a farmer a pay raise far over a teacher. And I know what training they go through. Big deal. Everyone needs to be trained for their job! Now why do you see a HUGE amount of people applying for those jobs???? Because the pay is insane and the jobs are generally pretty damn easy. Its makes me ill to see people that feel these people are doing these jobs because they are somehow SPECIAL. They are NOT special. They go to work and do their job just like a car salesman or a waste reclamation employee. They deserve no special breaks. They deserve no pensions and they need to start paying out for their healthcare PLUS their salary needs to be lowed by 20% for starters. I am very very very aware of what these people do on a daily basis due to my past job along with very close relationships. I know what Im talking about here.

    For someone to put these employees on a pedestal is a misstep.

    And I know very well what these people do because of VERY CLOSE family relationships. You are absolutely wrong. We've had teachers, cops, and fireman LONG before we ever had car salesmen or waste reclamation workers. These people ARE special and deserve special breaks because of the huge impact they have on society and HAVE had on society for a very long time. Your position on this is absurd and insulting to these professionals. Makes me ill to see people attack these folks. It shows that you do NOT know what you are talking about.

    You are not correct. I am correct. Because these people applied for a job and they got hired..... it makes them SPECIAL?
    What about all the other professions that this society CANT live without Hmmm? Should we think those people are special too? After all THEY trained for their jobs too. And society cant live without them. The people that work at the water reclaimation plant? The people that work at the water company? Should they get a HUGE $100K pension too? NO!

    Make a list of all the jobs today that society couldnt live without. And remember, just because you and I come in contact and/or see police, teachers, firemen much more often than other professions doesnt mean they deserve more money and a pension!
