2010 Teacher Actual Wages - Govt wages exposed

Interesting information and they get Doctor’s to write sick leave day’s for them. This is for 9/10 months work????

2010 Teacher Actual Wages - Govt wages exposed

This is accurate

ATTACHED: 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.

AVERAGE WAGE AND BENEFITS (remember this is for about 9 months of work)

TEACHERS:

Milwaukee $86,297

Elmbrook $91,065

Germantown $83,818

Hartland Arrwhd $90,285 (highest teacher was $122,952-lowest was $64,942)

Men Falls $81,099

West Bend $82,153

Waukesha $92,902

Sussex $82,956

Mequon $95,297

Kettle Mor $87,676

Muskego $91,341

STAFF:

Arrowhead - Bus Mng - Kopecky - $169,525

Arrowhead - Principal - Wieczorek - $152,519

Grmtwn - Asst Princ - Dave Towers - $123,222

Elmbrk - Burliegh Elemetary - Principal Zahn- $142,315 (for a primary school!!)

Madison - Asst Principal - McGrath - $127,835

UNIVERSITY of WISCONSIN STAFF (2009) (salary alone):

Michael Knetter - Prof of Bus - $327,828

Carolyn Martin -Chancellor Mad- $437,000

Hector Deluca - Prof of Nutritional Science - $254,877 (really??)

(source:Madison.com -as the UW removed salaries from being posted online in 2007- why if they are so low?)

How about some other “public servant job” ??? What do they make?

Madison Garbage men (2009) (salary only):

Garbageman, Mr. Nelson earned $159,258 in 2009, including $109,892 in overtime and other pay.

Garbageman, Greg Tatman, who earned $125,598

7 Madison garbage men made over $100,000

30 Madison garbage men made over $70,000

MILWAUKEE CITY BUS DRIVERS (salary only):

136 Drivers made more than $70,000

54 Drivers made more than $80,000

18 Drivers made more than $90,000

8 Drivers made more than $100,000

Top Driver made $117,000

(Source WTMJ)

(The average private bus driver makes $9-13 an hour (about 20,000 yr) with no pension, or healthcare.)

AND WE ARE SUPPOSED TO CONTINUE PAYING 100% OF THEIR GENEROUS RETIREMENT ? THEY HAVE SHUT DOWN SCHOOLS AS THEY DON’T WANT TO PAY 5.8% OF IT THEMSELVES ...REALLY?

Ralph worked at a private sector bus company. You know, the private sector where all my public sector friends tell me they could make more money in.

No. It's not nine months of work. I counted the actual days the teachers are in class on the official school calendar. They work an average of 6 months.

Remember the holidays, winter breaks, spring breaks, etc. When the kids are not in school, neither are the teachers.

I was hoping that the Wisconsin vermin were actually getting “schooled” but this is a just another depressingly truthful video telling us what we already know.

The country is finished. Anyone who still thinks that there is hope for the nation’s children is a naive fool. It doesn’t matter if you home-school some of them. The vermin still control your assets All that work of studying hard and learning to be a good person will lead to nothing but the exact same miserable life experienced by every other resident of a broken communist hellhole.

Their lives are over. Everyone is finished. How the hell does anyone get motivated to go to work in the morning?

Perhaps you could try not eating for a few days...or living underneath a bridge in a cardboard box....or walking around pushing a shopping cart half full of all your worldly possessions....

On the other hand....perhaps that is exactly the kind of work for which you are cut out!!!

Home schoolers and privately schooled kids will be the leaders of tomorrow. The rest can't even read. All they know how to do is breed and sign welfare checks.
I think you're seeing things from the wrong direction. An ignorant, dumbed down society is easier to lead, so in what position does that put the home schooled and privately schooled kids who are well educated and informed? The only place for them is on top. The rest will need to be led.

You're thinking exactly the way the left wants you to think. They're "nudging" you.

Why the hell do the tax payers put anything into their retirements? Why isn’t it wholly funded by their own wages?

Uh, the taxpayers pay the wages. If it is funded by their wages, the taxpayer is still funding their retirement.

Quadruple posts are rare. I have been seeing a good number of triple posts.

I wonder if the rage level correlates to the number of double, triple and quadruple posts seen on FR?

They took our tax money as union wages, and gave it to the democrats. Democrats paid them back by giving them more of our tax money. We get stolen from twice every year, and it doesn't cost the union or the democrat politicians a penny. They get more and more power with our money, and we become more and more enslaved. That's how we got to where we are today.

The legal minimum for an Illinois public school year is 176 days of “pupil attendance.” If a school doesn’t meet that minimum, they lose 1/176th (.56818%) of their state funding for each day they fall short.

I don't know why it did that.

I'm sure it has something to do with the Internet connection to FR.

Modern browsers these days seem to want to hide the fact from the users that they are actually waiting for a response and are busy.

The browsers used to have a big swirling graphic that let the user know to be patient. I’ve hit repost because it is not obvious and I think that I forgot to hit post.

“Economist Gary Shilling has calculated that 58% of the US population is dependent on the government for major parts of their income.

In 1950 it was just 29% - that’s double.

By 2018, Shilling estimates that an astounding 67% of Americans could be dependent on the government for their livlihood.

(including teachers, soldliers, beaurocrats, and other government employees, welfare and social security recipients, government pensions, public housing beneficiaries, and those who work for government contractors. )”

Get thyself to a counselor or shrink. That’s morbid. God does not want you to “off” yourself.

A large part of the Wisconsin population has German ancestry, but no German names on the list of holidays. There are holidays honoring Anglo-Americans, African-Americans, a Pole, a Norseman who probably never saw what is not the US, but no Germans. Achtung! Wir haben hier ethnische Diskrimination!

Not sure who would be the best to add to the list--Beethoven? Goethe? Schiller? Von Steuben?

Maybe should find someone whose birthday is either between late June and early August, or between Chrismas and New Year's, so that celebrating his birthday wouldn't mean cancelling a day of school.

It would be more appropriate to commemorate Steuben and
all later German-ethnic militiamen (e.g. Missouri ) by
reviving the formal citizen militia.

Don’t. If you, a FReeper do this, you will *definitely*
be giving aid and comfort to the enemy. Think on that.
