Those of us in the private sector are happy to receive 25% of our pay after 30 years - and in much higher stress jobs. Time for you to join the real world of those who pay your salaries!

That is because you were the bad kids who wouln't sit down, shut up and do your work. Now you want to complain that your job sucks? Life's a bi***, go to school, and learn something, Mr. "Anonymous"!

You flunkies never fail to aggravate me. I worked in the "PRAVAT SEK-TER" for 15 years before I became a Florida teacher, and I work more in one year than I did in FIVE in private business. We get no golf days, you lazy blankety-blanks, and by the way, if you don't like your job, then go write another contract with some other American, and then get paid.

All teachers unions do is make the job BEARABLE to people dedicated to helping YOUR worthless, lazy kids, who work us half to death by refusing to follow directions.

@ Mokki...you have proved my point perfectly. Morons like you hate education. You can't stand that most people are smarter than you. Too bad you didn't have an awesome teacher like me to teach you how to think and how to value knowledge.
@anonymous...I have worked in the private sector and am planning on returning because 1) people like you are constantly attacking and demoralizing public servants 2) the Republican testing complex is destroying education and 3) I can't afford to pay my bills on this measly wage. And please, I beg of you to teach at a low-income school for a year if you'd really like to know what high stress is, then get back to me.
Most people would be thankful if they only had to pay three percent of their salary toward retirement. That would be considered a gift in the private sector. But to Florida’s government employees, it’s a crime and an insult.

That’s why the unions have filed a lawsuit, forcing the Florida Department of Management Services to rack up a whopping $499,288 in legal fees (thus far) to defend a new law requiring government employees to pay a paltry three percent towards their state pensions.

Unsurprisingly, the unions won the first round in court. There is always a politically-friendly...
