teacher pay raises unbiblical

DEKALB COUNTY, Alabama -- Giving Alabama teachers a big pay raise could go against the Bible, state Sen. Shadrack McGill (R-Woodville) said recently at a prayer breakfast in north Alabama, according to the Times-Journal of Dekalb County.

But McGill supports the 62 percent pay increase the legislature gave itself in 2007 because means lawmakers are now less susceptible to taking bribes, the paper reported.

Regarding teacher pay, McGill said: "It's a Biblical principle. If you double a teacher's pay scale, you'll attract people who aren't called to teach. To go in and raise someone's child for eight hours a day, or many people's children for eight hours a day, requires a calling. It better be a calling in your life. I know I wouldn't want to do it, OK?"

The same reason could be used with members of government. Being a politician is a calling so they don't deserve higher pay

Harrumph! Especially not THIS knuckledragger.

Oh boy.

In high school I had an excellent chemistry teacher who in addition to teaching chemistry and grading papers, trained herself to start teaching AP Chem, and had a job delivering food after school so she and her husband could make ends meet. Down here, my husband makes more working at a call center than he would as a teacher.

Have you heard the other thing my state has pulled lately regarding schools? They had some guy named Bible Man come to do a school assembly, and a senator said it was ok because separation of church and state wasn't real or valid or something.

Sometimes I wish Abraham Lincoln would have just let the south secede.

It makes me really sad this. My dad is a teacher, and works his ass off. He has to pay for a lot of supplies out of pocket, stays extra hours after school to tutor/coach. Oh and I know few teachers who take summer off to hang out at the beach (like I've noticed a lot of people assume). My dad works 12 hour days and is shipped all around the state for his job in the summer. And this guy thinks they should get paid peanuts but yet he should get paid more?

What a fucking douchecanoe.

Bible in "not containing detailed descriptions of union negotiations" shock.

Also, doesn't it say "The labourer is worthy of his hire"?

I hate the way teachers are treated, as my mom was a teacher before she retired, and I saw how she worked her ass off not just every school day, but all the time. She had to pay for her own supplies, and often cleaned her own classroom since the custodial staff was really hit hard by the budget cuts, and if my mom didn't have the seniority she did, there's a good chance she would have been laid off instead of being able to retire.

      Guess I should update again? Frieda (Kiki, we renamed her) is here since the end of February 2021. She came with a bunch of problems, but is the best dog ever and is doing better every day. But we do now know how a dog with ptsd looks like. For real, not joking. If she is triggered during the day, she wakes up screaming at night. Not like dogs dream, but literally screaming. Other than that she went with us on countless trips, loves hiking and even cable cars. She is one heck of a fearless dog in situations who do not remind her of her old life. 
      My Grandpa passed away last May and I'm still grieving a lot. After sharing a house with my grandparents for over 30 years it is just horrible to lose one of them. Even though it was his decision and he got to go like he wanted. At home, in his bed during the night without doctors. He would have need more care and he did not want more care. So after turning 90 he decided to let go and became weaker and weaker. 
      In other news my dad stops working for good on April 1st. Retirement time. Keep my Mum and myself in your prayers. We really do not want him at home all the time. Haha!

      I don't always make good decisions for myself due to severe depression but I did today actively decide not to do something that might have been detrimental for me and am very proud of myself.

      Well, this is weird. At some point, recently, I broke my wrist. I had to get a Dexa-scan today (put it off for years) and along with some bone loss, damn I had it a few minutes ago… the results said, “Fracture risk is moderate, and the patient has a significant wrist fracture. Treatment is advised.”  my left wrist aches a little but not near as much as my back, feet, knees or fingers, damn RA. I have no idea how it happened. I haven’t fallen in 2 years, haven’t banged or bumped…  the dr will call tomorrow and we’ll get  this straightened out.

      I got my stickers today after renewing my vehicle registration. 
      Just reminded me again how different Minnesota is from Iowa.  Since I didn't register my vehicle in January last year, I got a sticker for the month since all MN plates are made with JAN printed in the lower left hand corner.  They also require people to put stickers on both the front and back plates, as opposed to Iowa that just want's the single sticker on the rear plate.
      Oh well, considering how MN is trying to move into the 2020s while Iowa is trying to lurch the fuck back to the 1840s, the type and number of license plate stickers is really a minor thing.
