It is time to tell the unions it is time to make a small sacrifice. PDF Print E-mail

It is time to tell the teacher's union to make a small sacrifice.

According to an interview on Fox News NJ Governor Chris Christie is asking NJ teachers to take a 1 year wage freeze and pay 1.5% of pay for their health insurance, which would average $750. per person and there would be no layoffs & no cuts to schools! According to Christie we will save $800 million.

They receive Full Family Free Medical Dental Vision! (a small amount pay a little) From the day a teacher is hired until they die they receive free health care for life! A teacher who put $124,000 into a pension will receive $3.3 mil pension & $500,000. in health can we sustain this kind of spending?

It is time to tell the teacher's union to make a small sacrifice.

It is time they share in the recession like small business owners. The unions want a 4 - 5 % pay increase, while we made half of what we made last year!

Last yr NJ paid $823 million in retiree health benefits.

NJ lost $70 billion in wealth the last 4 yrs with businesses leaving NJ bc of high taxes! Raising taxes is not the solution.
