Greedy Teachers’ Unions

by Nathan Harden - Fix Editor on September 10, 2012

Chicago teachers authorized a strike this week. Apparently, being the highest-paid teachers in the nation isn’t enough for them. So they’re walking out on the job.

The average salary for a public school teacher in Chicago is $76,000 per year–that’s before benefits. And remember, these folks get to take summers off.

Chicago teachers went on strike after rejecting a $400 million increase in compensation that would have raised the average teacher salary by 16% over four years.

Meanwhile, teachers marched up and down the picket lines shouting, “What’s disgusting? Union busting!”

I’ll tell you what’s really disgusting–greedy teachers’ unions.
