  •  Yes there is hatred about teacher pensions, that (11+ / 0-)

    teachers can retire in their 50s with 30 yrs in,  that they have better benefits and they have tenure and more job security. Those are the complaints I hear.

    They expect teachers to teach for 40 yrs until their mid 60s, and have few benefits and no tenure. That is what my hubby hears at work all of the time. Coworkers bash public school teachers all of the time but that also includes state workers.  Teachers and Public Employees are being bashed relentlessly in some areas.

      I've said to fellow teachers who were heading off to shop at WalMart - why are you doing that?  The public will not pay taxes to give us benefits and pensions if they don't have them also.

      Of course, I'd like everyone to have the job security and pensions.  The 401K plan was a another Republican boondoggle that no one is talking about.  That's another thing that the Deomcratic Party could be talking about but doesn't.

      The elevation of appearance over substance, of celebrity over character, of short term gains over lasting achievement displays a poverty of ambition. It distracts you from what's truly important. - Barack Obama
