I have heard the argument

I have heard the argument for years that teachers in this state are underpaid. I am not a teacher and have never had any interest in becoming one. Therefore, if I knew they were considered underpaid, then surely if someone wanted to pursue a teaching career in this state, they should definitely be aware of that prior to spending the money for college to become one. Every line of work in this country is in trouble to some extent. I work in customer service and due to the fact that we have lost numerous customers due to the economy, we are all being asked to leave early and take additional unpaid time off. It is a matter of taking it voluntarily or people will begin to lose their jobs. We are all struggling but we are all still employed. When I took this job, I knew what the rate of pay was. If I didn't want to work for that amount, I would not have taken the job. I don't care if you are a sidewalk sweeper, a teacher, or a rocket scientist. Everyone has bills to pay and everyone needs their money but we don't always get what we want or need. There is no draft for school teachers. It is common knowledge what and how they get paid. Don't want to work for that? Don't become a teacher. It is that simple.
