You are the one out of touch, everyones. Those college graduates that have been brainwashed in the GREED syndrome need to be reeducated. The taxpayer should NOT be responsible for their health care or retirement. If they want those personal luxuries they should have to fund them themselves, for the most part. It is part of what reasonable call: Personal Responsibilities!

I am not right. It is the report that is right.
Their greed could be called common sense too.

How else do you suggest that public school teachers get paid?

Yeah, you are right that they choose private sector jobs over teaching because of the pay and benefits. And they seek out those jobs because of greed. Instead of the 'loo-loo' liberal idea of providing a public service as a teacher. So, I still say it is due to greed. It is a matter of, how much should a public service employee depend on taxpayers. They see it as just a little bit from everybody, at least the ones that pay taxes, so nobody should care.

howzzat, read the reports. Those college graduates do not think that. In fact, they are choosing higher paying professions like engineering. They are claiming that if teaching salaries were more in line with the other professions that top third college graduates choose they would be increasingly likely to become teachers.

You could say their greed is one of equivalence. Make teaching salaries similar and then I will choose between the 2 or 3 professions I am considering. Keep them as they are and teaching will not be a consideration. It is as I see it, a societal choice. We can't force top graduates to enter teaching, but we can by making changes make it more likely. Again, read the reports.
Union-funded hacks like those at the Economic Policy Institute tell us public employees have it rough. Their pay is so low they resort to eating dog food at night. Their pensions are terrible and no one – and we mean no one – should be subjected to such poor health care coverage.

It baffles the mind, then, to look at the honest numbers. Because when one does, it shows that the people at EPI are little more than union shills spewing cooked up numbers to satisfy the paymaster.
