I’m actually impressed that you make THAT much

I was under the impression that teachers only made around mid-$30’s. Even YOUR salary is too low for the benefit you provide, IMO. I would have NO objection to good teachers earning $80K. But if someone is working 30 hours in a min. wage job like those two ladies I mentioned, how are they to improve their lot? $7.50 /hr times 30 hrs/week is about $900 per month. Subtract from that rent, food, utilities, and there CAN’T be much left… I never asked thr lady who works at Target what she makes or how much her rent is. She and her 11 y/o daughter live with her mom in a duplex in a crappy part of Detroit. So her rent may be comparatively cheap. I haven’t had detailed conversation with her about her future, but I doubt she can afford to attend college classes right now. Hell, I make MORE than minimum wage, and can’t afford classes at the moment…
