Teaching: Nice work if you can get it

The daily newspaper today devotes a front page story to the heated split among Wisconsinites over the budget repair bill battle in Madison. In the article that draws on man on the street interviews done across the state, the Journal Sentinel writes about Jennifer Kern:

Keen is 29. She makes $8.25 an hour working a couple of hours a day as a substitute crossing guard in Sheboygan. She lives with her fiancé - he works part time at Home Depot - and their 2-year-old son.

‘I agree they (teachers) maybe should pay a little more into their medical, get it more equal,’ Keen said. ‘But at the same time, they're providing a huge service to our children’."

Huge service? Not these folks.

Oh, there's more.
