    Are you saying that public teachers are overpaid or admitting that private schools underpay their teachers? Let's look at a few things.

    Public teachers must be credentialed by their state and that pretty much means at least 5 years of college. Private school teachers do not have to be credentialled at all.

    Public school teachers have to continue their education and renew credentials occasionally at the behest of their state....private school teachers do not.

    Yes, public school teachers can get tenure after a few years....private school teachers cannot...private schools can hire and fire at will...they also pick and choose their clientele and many teachers will tell you that is WORTH the lesser pay.

    It seem pretty clear to me what he is saying.

    Plus, in WI, they get pensions completetly paid for by the taxpayers, and have to pay a much smaller percentage of their health care than the private sector.

    Which sector is responsible for America's GDP, and economic growth? Private Sector.

    Which sector is responsible for the drain on America's wealth? Public Sector.

    Without the private sector, there is no fucking public sector. Live with it.

    This is so elementary to our Society. You have to wonder why there are so many that wish it changed? People getting used to others paying their way? People not thinking it through down to the ramifications? Laziness? All the above?

    The wife pays $700.00 a month towards health care for her and our kids. Union folks pay how much ? The wife pays 100% of her pension, unions pay how much into there pensions ? When the Wife retires she will rely on her pension, unions receive full pay and benefits. The unions have out lived there purpose and it is time to put an end to them.

    The author of this thread is the stupidest moron on the board............inability to read the Tea Leaves.

    Providence Rhode Island announced today it is laying off 1,500 teachers.

    The day of the free rides of public employee unions is over. This meathead posting up non-sense thread after non-sense thread isnt going to do dick to stop it...........the private sector is sick of this shit and has zero sympathy. A fact..........plus, the public is sick and tired of all these dues going to support Democrats. A good chucnk of the "Stimulus" was about just that = saving public employee union workers so that a big chunk of their dues could go back into making sure 2012 campaign contributions keep coming in to liberal leaders running for office. Its a fcukking racket...............and people are done.


    This whole debacle is the best thing in years for the GOP...........I urge the stupid union people to keep protesting.
