Re: “Guest Commentary

Living in Colorado, and I can attest in many other states that teachers (tenured only) are the most overpaid public worker that ever walked the earth. They are ahead of State and Local government workers (which are grossly overpaid also) and most of the private sector. For someone that works 195-200 days a year, gets obscene vacation days, "planning days" that ALWAYS fall on a Friday or a Monday, get automatic raises, benefit adjustments, etc. it is a shame. I have teacher clients that teach kindergarden,1st 2nd or 3rd grade (basically taxpayer funded DAYCARE, are tenured, work no more than 6 hours a day (Colorado State Law) and again, 1/2 yr of actual appearance making $65-75K a year. Now, the teachers say that they have to take work home with them during the week (grading tests, essays, etc) SO WHAT....most of the private sector does this also just to keep their jobs....
Suck it up teachers, the gravy train of public service is coming to a stop...the public taxpayer cannot afford it any more!!

Re: “Limits to Lending

And we put people in jail for "loan sharking" but apparently not the businesses that are sanctioned by the state. Being from Colorado, our legislature is grappling with the same issues but the payday lobby is very strong and whatever legislation that was discussed this year in the house and senate is watered down to be almost unimportant again!!
