[quote user="Worker friendly"] In this market your teenagers shouldn't be able to find work because all the people with families to support NEED those jobs.[/quote]

Don't worry, my teenagers found jobs. They just had to break the law to do it.

[quote user="Worker friendly"]How about a 4 year degree (teachers in this case) with a starting UNION salary of $22,000 per year!  Serioulsy. [/quote]

Perhaps if we could fire bad teachers and pay the good ones based on their performance instead of how long they've been on the job, salaries would be more representative.
