Letter to the Editor: Expect trouble from teachers

Posted

We hear that Oklahoma’s teachers are on strike because, the average salary of $45,276 requires second jobs to keep off food stamps. We know many folks who work twice as hard and would be pleased with such pay, and the accompanying benefits.

These remarks, originating with unions, are certainly aimed at Colorado’s situation, and they neglect to mention PERA (Colorado Public Employees Retirement Association) which is unbelievably out-of-sight, with taxpayers picking up most of the tab.

Jeffco residents can expect such teachers’ union demands, threats of strikes, mill levy overrides and bonds on the ballot.

Taxpayers hope their high-priced superintendent will discipline employees who choose the collective over professionalism.

Tom Graham,
Arvada
