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

JUST ANOTHER REASON TO INAUGURATE THE "TWENTY EIGHTH AMENDMENT" NOW!

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!

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
