Big Government -- Teachers' Union Spreading Wealth Around the Globe -- Kyle Nelson
In the midst of all the wreckage, one group has emerged completely unscathed: the leaders of the American Federation of Teachers.
The fat cats at the AFT are living large – dare I say like the 1%?
The union’s recent financial report filed with the federal department of labor reveals President Rhonda “Randi” Weingarten saw a cool 15% increase in her compensation – a bump of over $65K, taking her to $493,859.
An additional 193 employees make more than $100,000.
READER COMMENT: Is this living the dream, or what? You go to school to learn to teach. You take the job. You deal with parents and admin--and the children. Then, when you are all wrung out, the Union steps in, confiscates your protection money (so no one can fire you unless you rob a bank) and you watch them send your hard-earned money to Zimbabwe to support Unions there. Meanwhile, your wages go to classroom supplies so your kids have something to write on.
Maybe, except for the few, those who teach aren't too smart.
Yes, that comment was supposed to make you mad. The scenario is true and you enslave yourself in it.
READER COMMENT: And here all along I thought those dues were to go in the retirement and "rainy day" fund. Wonder how much the AFT teachers' retirement fund is underfunded.
