I sure do.. Dont need to provide a link.. do your own research because I'm not holding your hand.. Especially since you fell for the gimmick from the video comparing Wall Street executives to Teachers.. oooh I'm still laughing about that one..
You supported your specious argument with a factual accounting. Without substantiation your little story is just that, a fable. I'm perfectly willing to leave it at that.

As for the rest of your inane post - I am not going to get into a battle of wits with an unarmed opponent - again.

What was being compared, was contractual agreements in place for teachers to contractual agreements in place for Executives from companies that received bail out funds.

As far providing a link or not, ok well, since you don't want to provide a link we will do the research for you, just give the name of the school district.

Which is EXACTLY what I said it was doing.. Thanks for confirming the stupidity of the left for comparing the two.. Thats like comparing the salary of a janitor, and the basketball player.. again, paid by the same individuals..

Couldnt tell you.. lives in a different state, and I really dont care enough about it.. Why are you trying to change the subject ? Because you admit its stupidity to compare the two?

p.s. here is one such school district paying those wages, starting wage for some, $74,796.. + extras..
http://www.cps-humanresources.org/Careers/salary.htm
$59,335 - $64,808 (M.A. +45) (Lane 5, Step 1 – Lane 5, Step 3)
$61,087 - $66,560 (Ph.D./Ed.D.) (Lane 6, Step 1 – Lane 6, Step 3)

And here is another one
http://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=...C02S7LjhJaArmg
Add in the extras like coaching, which is a bonus, testing pay, and regional bonuses, you can EASILY hit $75K

Fox had major problems with cutting pay for Executives making millions from tax payer funds via bailouts, but are fine with huge cuts to teachers making $50,000 from taxpayer funds. Fox tried to portray two teachers with a combined income of $100,000 as doing very well, but tried to portray someone making $250,000 as barely above poverty. Comprehend??

What state are you talking about? What part of the state?

Seriously? From the person who can't substantiate (provide substance for) his own argument? Yet another example of the pot calling the kettle....

Fox had a problem cutting pay of PRIVATE employees.. do you understand the difference between a PRIVATE employee, and a PUBLIC one? Do you need someone to hold your hand and explain to you that government shouldnt dictate what we make if government isnt paying us?

A teacher earning $100K is doing very well.. They are TEACHERS.. They get great benefits, and depending on where they live, they can live a fabulous life.. A Corporate executive on Wall Street earning $250K though isnt living high on the hog. Its NYC.. Do you not have a clue about cost of livings and again, does someone need to explain to you the parts that the government shouldnt dictate private business pay?

yet another worthless posting with no substance and showing the inability to compare a corporate executive, which is a private employee to a public one.. Thanks for sharing, but your postings are becoming troll like...

From the link you provided. Which is NYC...FYI. So if 250K is poor in NYC what is 51K?

Teachers who have a master’s degree but no
teaching experience will start at $51,425.


So are you in favor of privatizing education? So the better teachers can get what they are worth?

Yep.. one no one has disputed.. Just more name calling and changing of the subject.. I guess thats all thats left when someone laughs in your face because you dont understand the differences between a public and private employee, and because you guys though there was a point behind a comic, comparing a teacher to a CEO.

Whats the matter, cant dispute that janitors should be paid different than the basketball player, even though they are paid by the same individuals? No wonder you cant comprehend that a teachers salary and a CEO one would be worlds apart..
