Another graphic, via Hot Air — note which teachers work the fewest hours:
Chicago teachers also get the highest pay. Plus their state is going bankrupt. But none of that will put the brakes on the runaway greed of public sector unions, which are devouring the country from within like a monstrous tapeworm. Even while sending their own children to private schools at a rate of 39% due to the inferior quality of their own instruction, Chicago teachers will not settle for anything less than a 30% increase on their already grotesquely extravagant salaries.
For anyone who thinks they are only being greedy on behalf of the 400,000 children they are walking out on, this graphic shows where the money goes; it’s an Illinois State Board of Education pension chart:
This shows a pension liability of almost $1 billion for the top 100 overpaid educrats in Illinois. But so long as someone else can be forced to pay for it, it will never be enough.
