Who said anything about a teacher pay cut? Nobody did....FAIL
Answered By: Primo™ - 3/9/2011
this is an intellectually dishonest question. Nobody said they should take a paycut. We said that they should not have collective bargaining rights and that they should cover some of their own retirement benefits.

You seem unable to see the distinction between government workers and private sector employees. I am guessing you are a civil servant.

What's funny is most of these morons don't think any of the money that goes to CEO's comes from us. How much less could insurance be if the CEO didn't make 1/2 billion/year? The difference would be greater than if we banned teachers unions.

Totally agree with what your questions implies when institutions are structured to screw the little guy, such as were corporate bylaws can be changed so share-holders cannot vote of CEO compensation. Where unions cannot take a secret vote to strike. Power brokers looking to feather their own nest seem to see no evil in... More
