Teachers Union Boss Randi Weingarten: My Salary’s Only $360K

Organizations Randi Weingarten American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten

American Federation of Teachers (AFT) President Randi Weingarten, who was paid $543,150 last year, defended her compensation by claiming her pay is $360,000 and other reported expenses simply prove the union’s “transparency.”

As part of a series of April 28 Twitter posts demanding Congress hike the federal minimum wage to $10.10, Service Employees International Union (SEIU) District 1199 quoted from a January column Weingarten wrote for The Huffington Post.

“Justice means that hardworking people must have access to a living wage,” Weingarten wrote. AFT paid Weingarten $556,981 in 2012 and $543,150 in 2013.

When her 2013 pay was pointed out on Twitter, Weingarten made an awkward attempt to defend the gold-plated compensation she takes from AFT members and forced “fair share” fee payers in districts represented by AFT:


Note that SEIU District 1199, far from reacting with shock that a leading spokeswoman for government redistribution of wealth took over $360,000 from workers last year, replied to Weingarten, “you do amazing work for working people, children and their families.”

This is why they keep wanting to raise our taxes.  They try to make us think it's "for the kids, the students" but it's not!  It's all about greed and power.

The union boss squeezes money out of school districts for the teachers and squeezes money out of the teachers for union dues and salaries. The poor taxpayers are taxed by their local government  to provide the school funding. This union boss is being paid far to much at the expense of the teachers and all taxpayers!

Every Teacher in the country should read this...over and over and over, until it sinks-in that they are being played!

Her basic pay is $125 per hour for an 8 hour day, 7 days a week.  How does she justify that amount?

Who could not manage money taken from the salaries earned by hard working people in the form of DUES and call that a job and "responsibility."  To who?  Unions have out-lived their usefulness.  For those of you who are not aware, 2/3 the number of teachers on campus or workers in a business is enough to oust the union and if to your advantage invite a different union in - one which does not have a history of being totally leftist. Get em out!

For the job done that's $359,999.50 too much.

I don't know how she survived on that little......Bitch needs jail time....M


Ugly looking thing; she certainly doesn't use any of the money on cosmetics, or a beauty parlor, so let's cut her salary to $36K!

Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”

Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.

According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.

The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.

“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
