This past Wednesday these very unionized teachers of Lake Forest High School District 115 walked out on strike.
|Members of the exploited proletariat of Lake Forest |
who average $106k for their 9 mo. gigs
These oppressed members of the proletariat average $106,500 a year in salary for their 9 month gigs and that compares pretty well with the already very generous Illinois average teacher salary of $65,000.
But these oppressed members of the exploited working class - in what is perhaps the most posh educational setting in Illinois still aren't satisfied.
Despite the continued national and statewide economic malaise (believe it or not there have been foreclosures even in Lake Forest) these piggies are still holding out for raises of 5 to 6.5 percent per year.
