Nice fucking article. What exactly is a "gold plated health benefit?" 70k isn't much, especially considering the amount of taxes there are in Chicago.

Not sure on the health care thing, but $71,000 is a lot when compared to the $49,000 yearly average for a teacher. And $71,000 is a lot, when you have a shorter day than most people, have summers off and get 20 paid holidays (I think?) during that 9 month work period. And get a full pension.

I hope when they strike next year, they are all fired. It'll suck for a lot of people, especially the good ones, but something has to change, it's getting ridiculous.

hey stupid! The Gipper was Reagan's lifelong nickname.

You thinking I'm stupid doesn't change the fact that Reagan was one of the greatest U.S. President of all time. You probably think Clinton or Obummer is #1.

I personally work for the school district and some teachers get paid over 100K dollars a year. This is a grade school. I've told off some teachers that complain about money. "Oh I'm not getting enough" I tell them right to there face "your getting more than you should and you get a reliable check" Some people need to just STFU seriously. They don't realize how good they have it.

They get every holiday off. Thanksgiving break 1 week. XMAS 2 weeks, Spring 1 week. Summer 3 months approx. When I break it down for them in simple terms they realize I speak some sort of truth. It's funny how the highly educated people seem to have the most shit for brains in my experience. I'm surprised some of them can wipe their own ass.

Meanwhile you have guys working construction like I did prior to this job making less working 5 times harder dealing with heat, whereas here it's 68 degrees all year long. I don't really take this personally, I have it really good right now, but the story to this post is some people need to just open up there eyes.

In a nut shell the system is fucked and I don't disagree nor am I arguing. I just think it's crazy when people that have it really good complain.

I had a conversation with my friend last night. I told him because he was complaining about overtime retro pay. I said

"your lucky you got O.T" your lucky to just get your 40 hours. Lost of people don't have jobs.

There is another guy that has been off work for 9 weeks and got approved for 2 more because he has a bruised foot. REALLY! AND THEY APPROVED THIS!!!!!!!

I had my finger operated on and I was back to work in 2 hours. Some people just don't care how they look, they have no morals, and I believe they will get what comes to them in the end. Both injuries happened on the job for the record.

No wonder Illinois is broke.
They pay local superintendents more than the governor.


Dr. Harry Griffith, Superintendent of Lake Forest Districts 67 and 115, makes more than the governor of Illinois.
Nancy J. Thorner reported:


Harry Griffith certainly knows how to negotiate a contract. On top of his lavish cash compensation, Griffith has a contract to receive benefits and perquisites bringing his total compensation for the 2010-11 school year to over $430,000 Griffith oversees 3,800 students in the 5 schools of Lake Forest Districts 67 and 115. According to the Chicago Tribune, Mr. Harry Griffith’s compensation is more than the Naperville Superintendent who oversees 22 schools and 18,000 students. His compensation package is also more than the Chicago and Milwaukee school chiefs, AND the governor of Illinois!

im suprised to see this thread is supported on CLSB (the home of right wing) and supporting firebreatha who it appears is taking a stance to support the teachers.

The article is poorly written sensationalist garbage, but generally anything which slams unions and Democratic thinking is supported on CLSB.

as for Reagan being the greatest president ever? Hardly, his deregulation is at least in part at fault for some of the problems we have had over the last 10 years.

To think that one man is going to fix (or break for that matter) our country is simply atrocious. I think that most people think the president is the pilot and our country the airplane, he has control over direction, altitude, airspeed, etc.

I would argue a more accurate analogy is that the president is the engineer of a train. All he can do is control the speed at which we travel.

When it comes to administrator salaries, District 219 Superintendent Nanciann Gatta earned $299,587 in compensation last year, making her the eighth-highest-paid Illinois school administrator. Her salary was nearly $50,000 higher than it was the previous school year, according to the state data.

District 219 Board of Education President Bob Silverman said Gatta’s salary “represents less than .0019 of the district’s ($150 million) budget.”

“Although school superintendents work in the public sector, their compensation levels are driven by market forces,” Silverman said in a statement. “Successful school districts struggle to employ the most qualified and experienced administrators to head their institutions. As is the case with the private sector, the laws of supply and demand drive compensation levels.”

In the face of repeated red flags, school board members hiked the pay of a south suburban superintendent and fattened his pension to among the more lucrative in the state, the Tribune has found.
The superintendent, Alex Boyd Jr., was indicted last month on felony charges that he stole tens of thousands of dollars from West Harvey-Dixmoor District 147, a financially and academically struggling school system that he ran for more than a decade.

Boyd was paid about $250,000 a year in his final years on the job, placing him within the top fifth of superintendents across the Chicago region. He then retired in 2011 into a $192,000-a-year pension, the fifth-highest initial pension awarded that year for any retiring public school teacher or administrator across the state.

Ridiculous salaries and pensions are insane. If you are in the public school system you shouldn't make anywhere near 100K. People should make more money based on workload and performance, and you can't measure your performance from dumb or smart children. People don't become teachers for the money. At least they shouldn't.

Executive Order 13580 - Interagency Working Group on Coordination of Domestic Energy Development and Permitting in Alaska

Executive Order 13579 - Regulation and Independent Regulatory Agencies


Wise regulatory decisions depend on public participation and on careful analysis of the likely consequences of regulation. Such decisions are informed and improved by allowing interested members of the public to have a meaningful opportunity to participate in rule making. To the extent permitted by law, such decisions should be made only after consideration of their costs and benefits (both quantitative and qualitative).

Executive Order 13578 - Coordinating Policies on Automotive Communities and Workers


Section 1. Policy. Over the last decade, the United States has experienced a decline in employment in the automotive industry and among part suppliers. This decline accelerated dramatically from 2008 to 2009, with more than 400,000 jobs being lost in the industry. Now, 2 years later, the American automotive industry is beginning to recover. The automotive industry has, over the past 2 years, experienced its strongest period of job growth since the late 1990s. Exports have expanded, and the domestic automakers in 2010 gained market share for the first time since 1995. The automotive supply chain, which employs three times as many workers as the automakers, has also shown renewed strength. However, we still have a long way to go.

+1 there should be a cap in the public sector. You shouldn't be able to get a 10% raise every year coming out making 200,000 then getting a pensionthats only 2% less than that.

Most liberals become teachers because thats all they know how to do. 2nd they know they are set for life becoming a teacher. 3rd, they know schools out for summer.

I remember in junior high how a teacher was bragging how they got so much benefits. Don't use up your paid days off, they cumulate and you can be a baller.
