it’s Talking Points with the Founding Fathers…
ARE THEY THAT DUMB? I’m referring to the Wisconsin teachers that are calling in sick to protest. Just where the heck do they think the money to pay their salaries and benefits come from? My God help us if these people who we should be able to trust to teach our kids the truth are this stupid.
I heard this morning that the average salary (with benefits which includes the state paying majority of their healthcare) is around $89,000!! Most people when they think of salary forget the extras. They forget that vacation, sick leave, matching contributions for 401K and other retirement plans, additional educational benefits, etc, are all a part of the total package.
Public employees like those arrogant and ignorant teachers, are paid by the taxpayers. Michelle Maulkin’s website has a list of administrators and their salaries. Check it out and ask yourself: “Do you make that much?”
Since they are paid by the taxpayers, I say Governor Walker, fire their butts. We’re always told in this state that “Teachers don’t get in it for the money.” Well, this is proof they do. So fire them. In the private sector if you blatantly lie to your employer and they find out, you are toast. Gone. Out of there!
Same thing should happen to the Wisc teachers. I’m sure there are plenty of people looking for a job that would take half of what they are making.
I think it’s about time Lee County citizens find out what we’re paying our public employees. Wonder if our county manager can provide that.
