Raises for Teachers

Ok, first of all I know that there will be a plethora of teachers who retort to my statements. I work between 50 and 60 hours a week. I work holidays. I sweat all summer long, and come home each evening totally drained with heat exhaustion. I make less than teachers, and the majority of my wage goes to pay for health insurance. I love my job and don't complain about the pay. I knew how much I would be making when I decided to take the job, just like teachers. Teachers work shorter hours, get lots of meaningless holidays off, get great benefits, get good pay for what they do, and for God sakes get time off in the blazing hot summer. Teachers seem to complain about pay more than any other profession. Be greatful for your job. You knew what the salary and benefits were when you took the job. And enjoy your raise, because effective Jan. 1, 2007, my health benefits were revoked due to budget cuts within my company. Now I make much less than I used to because I have to pay a ridiculous premium for health insurance, and just in case you are wondering, no I DON'T SMOKE.
