N.E.A. Dues At "Work"

Like almost all public school teachers in California, I'm forced to financially support the National Education Association and the California Teacher's Association.

Neither of which allow the rank-and-file to elect their own leadership or have any say in determining the amount that each teacher must pay in the form of dues and other fees.

Not surprisingly, perhaps, is the fact that much of the money that is forcibly withheld deducted from our paychecks goes to support a legion of highly-paid cronies staff members such as this speechwriter who'll earn between $60,504 and $111,613 per year plus benefits and relocation allowance.

I wonder who you have to know in order to get a ticket to ride this gravy train...
