That wasn't a tickle of the hyperbole bone, someone took a bat to it. :roll:

But when he says I'm equating teachers with Jesus, that's not hyperbole?


Now you're reverting to the 'Liberals did it too" argument.

Babysitters make minimum wage... That's a FAR stretch from $80k/yr...


Acording to BCTF, BC teachers the salary range for teaches with a 5-year university education is a minimum of $45,909 and a maximum of $75,353.

That's the trap isn't it? Damned if you do, damned if you dont, eh?

According to the BCTF, apparently, it depends on the School District.

Still, a baby sitter with 8 year experience still gets paid minimum wage, where as a teacher makes 80k. (or something) Yet, both are VERY important in a child's life and teach them a lot of different things.

But clearly you see these are still 2 very different things? That's like comparing a taxi driver to an airline pilot.

Who do you interact with more... the airline pilot or the taxi driver?

So that makes that the baby sitter stays at the same wage, while the teacher gets 10% more in 5 years and is now bitching because they ain't getting another 10%?
That's fair?

Fuck...I got paid $1.25 an hour to get off the school bus with my younger cousins and heat their dinners. Their parents(their dad was my mom's cousin actually)didn't get home until 6.

Double whammy for teachers who are also parents.

peck420 peck420:
What's with the, "this profession is more valuable...no that profession is more valuable" BS that pops up every time this sort of topic comes up?

If any of the professions weren't valued, they probably wouldn't exist as professions.

Is it that hard to say that all professions are valuable to society? As to which profession is more valuable? Put them in the ring, charge pay-per-view and give everybody a raise with the proceeds. :D

Actually, if you look at my post and boot's response to it, it's pretty obvious we're having fun with how absurd the whole argument can get.

I remember getting into this very argument in my Gr.13 Family Studies class. And being one of only 3 guys in the class, support was hard to come by :lol:
The teacher was taking the argument, "equal pay for equal work" and turning it into "equal pay for work of equal value". Meaning a female working a particular job should get paid the same as a man doing a different job but "assessed" to have the same value to society. Who made those assessments I'll never know :lol:
I finally pointed to the stupidity of the whole argument by challenging her to defend that position with steel workers. "Should a female welder working on the 3rd floor of a building's steel skeleton get paid the same as a male welder working on the 10th floor? Feel free to switch the genders cuz the answer is still the same".
:lol:

I'll see if I can dredge up something out of my give-a-fuck bag for them.


Nope.... nothing there.

Were it up to me I'd give the teachers the rest of their careers off from public employment so as to afford them the opportunity to work in the private sector where they can make all that money they think they deserve.

So you'd destroy the entire education system altogether. Good idea. Seems to be working well in places like Afghanistan.
