I'm tired of people in private sector bitching about teacher's pensions. I just came from a wedding where I listened to the same thing over and over again. What all these people fail to realize is that the pension is just part of our salary. We agree to take a job, beneath our education and beneath our earning potential for many reasons. Why shouldn't we reap the rewards of a pension at the end of our careers. A teacher's education is equal to that of a lawyers, but we don't earn their salary. Many teachers have a far higher education than others who make more than us. Teachers take their income at the end. We work now for less and reap the rewards when we retire.
