    Man that just blows your mind,that’s a lot of money. What about health care for life,retirement, and all the other benefits as well. How many months do they work out of the year? After all this there is very little money left for what we really need.

    • You Don't Need to Know Says:

      As usual, Oldman, you have little or no understanding of the situation. Educate yourself on the problem before spouting off about something of which you biggest comlaint seems to be that they earn more than you do. I am not at all familiar with how college professors are paid but high school teachers work on a nine-month contract but have their pay pro-rated over twelve month period so that they will have income when the are off, generally June, July, and August.
