Read "Rights of the Colonists" Establishing Government Salaries

If we kicked the unions out of government and each county determined the teachers pay based on the average taken of the whole ordinary citizen salary within that county ALONE including unemployed (excluding union and corporate salaries), Then you would limit the salaries to something realistic, and not demanded.

The Rights of the Colonists had an important rule that applies here:

Samuel Adams: "....In the state of nature men may as the Patriarchs did, employ hired servants for the defence of their lives, liberty and property: and they should pay them >>>"reasonable" wages. Government was instituted for the purposes of common defence; and those who hold the reins of government have an equitable natural right to an honourable support from the same principle "that the labourer is worthy of his hire" but then the >>>>>"SAME COMMUNITY" (NOT NATIONALIZED UNIONS!!!) WHICH THEY SERVE, ought to be >>>>>"ASSESSORS OF THEIR PAY": Governors (all government employees) have >>>>>>>"NO RIGHT TO SEEK WHAT THEY PLEASE"; by this, instead of being content with the station assigned them, that of honourable SERVANTS of the society, they would soon become Absolute masters, Despots, and Tyrants. Hence as a private man has a right to say, what wages he will give in his private affairs, so has a Community to determine what they will give and grant of their Substance, for the Administration of publick affairs. And in both cases more are ready generally to offer their Service at the proposed and stipulated price, than are able and willing to perform their duty.-- "
