The Truth About Teacher Salaries
When the people paying earn only half of the people who are being paid by them that’s not gonna work out. Now, a good deal of the revenue from schools comes from property taxes, you know, the homes and businesses of people who never pay their fair share, many of whom don’t have children living at home. What does this money pay for? Public sector union teachers, administrators and their facilities and all part of a near monopoly that turns out ill-educated students. That’s what the scores say, that’s what business owners say, they all agree. Yet despite these results, these greedy property owners who are derogatorily called the 1%, they’re dutifully paying their property taxes without so much as a thank you.
You know, yesterday I got off on a rant about it being time that we went after the left’s base. They’re going after ours as racist and sexists and we are the 1%, and we’re the ones not paying our fair share and all of that; and we have to have our taxes increased. We’ve gotta “do more,” when in fact their base make up the nation’s losers! Way too many people who vote Democrat are in the loser class in this country, and they’re out there with their hands out. They’re demanding this and they’re demanding that just because they can — and no matter what they’re given, they never say thank you. They just continue to complain that it’s not enough; and they continue to claim that others who are providing what they get still aren’t paying their fair share; and all of this is encouraged by the Democrats. But we, we are what?
We’re supposed to thank all of these public sector teachers. We’re supposed to thank these people for the hard work they’re doing educating our students — and we’re expected to say that we wish they were paid more. We are expected to say that they are being taken advantage of by the rich, evil 1% who aren’t paying their fair share. That’s the accepted narrative: “Teachers, principals, administrators rebuke are underpaid, underappreciated; we don’t say thanks enough for all the hard work they do. Instead we’re overpaying athletes and bankers and everybody else.” When in fact the takers and losers that make up the Democrat Party base never say thanks for anything. All they ever say is, “It’s not enough,” and that’s what these guys, Richwine and Biggs, have done at AEI and Heritage. They have studied and they have examined who really is underpaid and who isn’t, and it’s interesting stuff. It gets a little technical, which is why I have summarized it for you here.
