This is the official excel DPI database of teachers wages by school district. Look up your own district !!!
The current budget repair bill would have them paying about 5.8% towards their own retirement….right now, we the taxpayer, pays 100% of their generous retirement, and most of us pay 100% of our own retirement too.

  1. Wisconsin sounds like the mecca of public employment.
    I am outraged and surprised by such over inflated wages.

  2. One word…. INSANE!

  3. I posted the following over at NB last night:
    What is it about government position holders that makes them think theirs doesn’t stink, and somehow the laws of economics and finance do not apply to them?
    I mean, what makes them special?
    Most of these incompetent goobers couldn’t get hired in the private sector even if the economy was booming and they showed up for the interview with a suitcase full of money.

    • Steve,
      Yeah, a certain contributor over there git a bug up his butt over my use of the term camel-washer on one of his threads, and yanked the comment.
      LOL – It’s not like I haven’t used that term over there about a million times over the last five years.
      I guess its a good thing I didn’t say dune monkey, else I just might have gotten the hook fer sure.
      I hate political correctness, although I did stop using rag-head. What more do they want, a pint of blood?
      LOL – Before you know it, we will have to refer to the Islamists as our peaceful Muslim brothers and sisters, else we are liable to offend one of ’em.
      That’s when I’ll gag, choke, and hurl.

      • Steve,
        It’s like I have been saying for years.
        I’ll believe there is such a thing as “moderate” Islam when I see them taking to the streets in large numbers and loudly protesting against the more “radical” actions of their Islamic brethren.
        Their silence is not only deafening, but it speaks volumes.
        I love it when I hear people expressing concern that certain actions might “radicalize” Muslims.
        My question is, how do you radicalize something that has been radicalized since its inception 14 centuries ago?

  4. Unbelievable…this is madness.

  5. lowtechgrannie

    When my husband was a public sector employee (worked for GSA in the 1980s) there was an iron-clad rule; no government employee could be engaged in partisan politics ie, campaign for or promote any political candidate or party in any way. When did that change?

  6. gee and i thought athletes with no education or brain cells making $20 million a year was excessive.

  7. We need to push to get Education back to the States and not the feds. By the public display these so called teachers have given,I might pay that much to put each and every one of them away,in a padded cell or institution or a remote island where they could never come into contact with children AGAIN!
