Bonus Envy

CNN has a little story about how a variety of people will be spending this year's bonus. Including this clown who's getting somewhere between $50,000 - $70,000.

Meanwhile, your EdWonk, who has spent years in the classroom, received a 1% pay cut and increased state income and sales tax rates.

The result will be that my take-home pay will be about what it was in 2003.

Even though I never knew that I'd get rich serving as a public school teacher, I never would have thought that I'd be earning less take-home money now than I did 7 years ago..

I guess that I should just feel grateful that I even have a job...
