Answer to "Anonymous" to an email I received.
Nice try. You said you were from #150. You are 100 unionized. I suppose you teach all summer with no extra pay. You agreed to the contract so what's your beef? Why don't you lead the drive for pay for performance?
Bet you’re a Democrat and you are complaining that the state may go broke?? How about the whole country that has been under Democrat control for years?
And yes, I was, still am, more competent than many teachers, administrators and many board members. I've proved it over and over. I worked for one company 8 years. Promoted into management and then into top management. I started and owned my own business for 28 years. The company still bears my name 18 years after I sold it. The more competent I become, the more I made. Better yet, I performed a service lacking in the community and ENJOYED my work which sometimes meant working 7 days a week with short vacations.
I also met every payroll. If employees were not happy, I encoouraged them to leave. I was able to fire those who did not help cause the compamy to succeed. And yes, I was unionized for 22 years with only one grievance filed which the company won.
I have no pension but my wife and I do quite well.
By the way, I didn't write the article or didn't you notice?
Why do you comment without your name? I put my name on everything I write.
