Teachers shouldn’t complain about jobs

Teachers do not seem to realize how good they got it. Their jobs are for life.

Teachers do not seem to realize how good they got it. Their jobs are for life.

Since 2008 many people have lost their pensions. Teachers pensions are backed by the tax payers so it cannot go broke.

Like a lot of other unions, the carpenters union is in trouble, they have cut pensions in half.

My hourly wage is the same money I made in 1985. Teachers get two months off in the summer and that’s just the start of their holidays.

Unions other than the government employes unions are almost extinct. The fact is the contacts they signed where when times where good. Those days are now gone, there are no more funds available without raising our taxes. Teachers, please join the real world. You guys got it made compared to me or most people I know.
