Tell that to the millions who are out of work or struggling to make ends meet with two jobs!
Democrats often talk about the greed of the 1% of big income earners. But what about the Teacher's Union which is one of the big contributors to the Democrat Party?
Chicago teachers make an average of $76,000 a year working only nine months of that year. That's the highest teacher pay in the nation. Yet these extremely well paid teachers went on strike after rejecting an offer to increase their pay 16% over four years.
Not enough says the union. Greed is more important than educating our children!
P.S. Approximately 80% of 8th graders in Chicago schools are NOT proficient in reading or math. If anything, these teachers should get a PAY CUT!
