Teacher GREED

Are you willing to hand over your house and quality of life because of teacher greed and a school board who is not willing to start firing those demanding more more more?  By now everyone is probably aware that the Weiser teachers are not agreeing to contract offers.  Do you think it's time for the school board to start handing out the pink slips?  Let this group who feel they are so underpaid stand in the unemployment line.  Maybe they can get lucky and find a $10,000 a year job with no health insurance and that $50-80,000 job with $39 per month family health benefits will start looking pretty good. As for your pension, your problem not ours!  As bad as things are for most of Americans the greedy people in our school districts just don't GET IT!  Somehow, sometime soon, this attitude of we are better and worth more than all of you because we went to college and got a degree and we are the future of your children blah blah blah needs to be silenced.  Get over it.  Enough is enough.  Be happy (for once) with what you have and let us taxpayers alone.  I don't feel I should owe for life because I had 2 children go through the school system.  Foolish spending and extremely high salaries need to come to an end.  If it takes replacing every single teacher, board member, superintendent, nurse, librarian........then we need to demand the hatchet starts swinging.  I am not willing to give up my home and my quality of life because of teacher GREED!  Are you?????


  1. Thank you to our school board president, Dave Zwicky, for telling it like it is. Weiser teachers need to accept what they are offered. Take it or accept a pink slip and stand in the unemployment line. We can't afford you anymore!

  2. I know this is an old post, but just so you know... many districts go through contract negotiations and teachers often turn down contract offers. The school board is responsible for trying to fill the budget gap, and have to do their best to do so in any way possible. Often, this is done by proposing a contract to teachers expecting them to reject it because it cuts a lot of the things they already get. Many rejections of contracts aren't because of a lack of raise or lack of additional bonuses, but rather because the contract cuts out certain things that teachers already have. I don't know the specific details of the Weiser negotiations that were taking place at this time, but it's something worth looking into in the future before you assume the contract rejected was a worthwhile one. Maybe you do already know that information, but it's just something to keep in mind.

    Also, in case you forgot, teachers pay taxes too.
