I love that line...the "I'm over educated" one.....cuz thats what you're saying. BTW, Einstien mocks you and that line of thought...but you're smart....you knew that, right?

Heard that from a teachers union Prez around here a number of yrs ago when she was on TV complaining about how much her mechanic charged and the fact she had "twice the education" he had...to which I sneeringly responded via my mental telepathy powers...

"If you're so smart fix you're own damn car, bitch!"

I now say it to you...

The only unions worth a rats ass are the building trades...after them you can all go suck eggs and suffer the ridicule heaped upon your lazy asses


:tool: Your bitterness towards the teaching profession is comical. Clearly back at the Old Red School House you must have been paddled for looking up Polly Prissy Prude's skirt and have NEVER gotten over it.

FTR....I have at no point in this thread said I was smarter or better than ANYONE. I hold two pieces of paper that only a small % of people have, doesn't make me smarter, but it DOES suggest that I am a professional at what I do.

Well shit, maybe you should go on strike.

I wonder how many bathroom attendants there are in the US. I bet it's less than teachers. So obviously they are more valuable and should be paid more.

Edit: I'm not implying I think you're a bathroom attendant, just that the numerical size of the field one works in means just about nothing.

Paper may be "just paper" FMB, but the knowledge and expertise...aka specialized training is so much more.

Full of myself....maybe...confident in the service I provide the taxpayer...NO DOUBT!

Bottom line, I PERSONALLY give the taxpayer a good service for their money, if you doubt that send me a PM and I'll send you the directions to my school...I'd love to have you for a visit, might do ya some good.

Since August there have been some interesting developments on the SB5/ Issue 2 front which is why I'm coming back on this.

The district union I negotiate for recently made HUGE concessions on wages and health care...Why? Because we understand the plight of the taxpayer....we didn't need Johnny jerk off to champion any bill MAKING us do it, we did it because we understand....there's your greedy union thugs for ya....it works if its left alone.

Drive a bus, huh? Be careful, bud....if this all falls apart I might come after a private sector job...I KNOW I'd be an attractive candidate for several.

Vote No on Issue 2...and YOU...have a nice day :thumb up:

With all due respect. I have one question for you and your brethren. Any chance you guys are making those same concessions in the latest bargaining without SB5 sitting right there in front of you?

Yes

The agreement had EVERYTHING to do with the fact that our district is in financial trouble and NOTHING to do with Issue 2.

In full disclosure it DID have a bit to do with pulling and end around the Merit Pay (Budget)Bill which, as you will all see soon, is a complete train wreck.

Issue 2 is going to be really damn close. probably no more 1-1.5%. I think Columbus will vote it down, and I assume Cleveland will too. I live in a heavily Republican area and I see way more "Vote No" signs than "Vote Yes".

Who wants to put a Vote Yes in their front yard with Police, Fire, and Teachers unions supporting Vote No. Might be a large silent majority, or it might be what it be.

Even if it makes financial sense not many putting that sign in their yard...

But back to Wisconsin...

an interesting (and under-publicized) consequence of the Wisconsin reforms should not have been hard to predict...but no one was talking about it before the fact...

http://usa.goooh.com/2011/10/30/educati ... t-layoffs/

With teachers now paying an increased percentage of their own health insurance premiums, and an increased contribution to their own pension funds, many school districts have "found money" that used to go to these costs, and can now be used for things pertaining to educating kids....you remember the kids?....like buildings...books...supplies...hiring more teachers...reducing class sizes, etc...all the things that unions who fought the reforms SAID they were concerned about.

Supporters of similar reforms (and I'm one of them) should try harder to quantify these kinds of savings to school districts at the time these types of reforms are proposed (or voted on) to help taxpayers and parents realize that there can be tangible benefits to their schools when these reforms are implemented.

Linked the wrong article....the one above talks about savings to school districts that were permitted to now opt out of contracts with the health insurance provider that is OWNED by the union...

...the one below is more about savings generated by increased teacher contributions to pension and health insurance premiums...

I should have admitted I didnt read it, just was in my email and I remembered this thread.

Though picking off the first bullet point doesn't do the thing total justice. They also point out many of the fringe benefits are rarely included in BLS statistics benefit data. Or that public teachers make more then their equvivilent private school counter parts. Or the job security. Or other stuff that make me feel they should give back some. Redistribute some of that wealth back to tax payers.

What did you think of the Shane twist on The Walking Dead. Let's face it this topic is boring.

You have no idea how much I hate fucking Obama right now. It is just about time to dial up the partisan rancor on this board.

Just my hunch that you'd find a correlation between the arrival of the teachers union and the drop in world rankings of our kids


Or an even greater correlation between the rise in the divorce rate in this country and single parent homes.

To lay it all on the teacher's unions is cherry picking at its finest...but keep thumping that anti teacher drum, bro :thumb up:

With teachers now paying an increased percentage of their own health insurance premiums, and an increased contribution to their own pension funds, many school districts have "found money" that used to go to these costs, and can now be used for things pertaining to educating kids....you remember the kids?....like buildings...books...supplies...hiring more teachers...reducing class sizes, etc...all the things that unions who fought the reforms SAID they were concerned about.

Supporters of similar reforms (and I'm one of them) should try harder to quantify these kinds of savings to school districts at the time these types of reforms are proposed (or voted on) to help taxpayers and parents realize that there can be tangible benefits to their schools when these reforms are implemented.


LOL

The first time I see a school board move to lower class sizes voluntarily will be when :pigs:

Yup, they will have extra money to do alot of the above (doesn't mean they will) and these are good things. Of course, this will be done on the backs of folks who live in the communities and spend their money on the businesses that are also in those communities....but now, without as much disposable income those rabble rousing union thugs won't be able to go and spend so much in said businesses...unless you are of the belief we are all sitting around on our piles of cash and laughing at the suckers who contribute to our wealth ALA King George III.
