WHEN PRIVATE SECTOR jobs require high salaries or seven-figure bonuses — in order to attract the best and brightest to a particular job — those filling the positions are just greedy, but, at the same time, it’s vitally necessary to the survival of the Republic that we pay public servants twice the going rate, because we can’t get the best public employees without adequate compensation.
Funny. Moi is only so old, so doesn’t have a personal memory of this, but has heard tell of teachers in the dark ages before unionization who actually could sponge down a blackboard with any one of these educationist-credentialed morons who dare to call themselves teachers these days. And they were NOT richly compensated. THEY had a vocation.
Look it up sometime.
