Public-Employee Unions: Raking It In

We mentioned Henninger's editorial, wherein he opines that the real battle in the next 10 years will be the public employees' agreements vs. private-sector employees' agreements.

Anecdotal proof of his pudding is the Racine Teachers' agreement.

Teachers will receive a 1.4 percent raise this year and 1.5 percent next year under the tentative two-year contract it reached with Racine Unified, according to copy of the contract leaked to RacinePost.

That's not all, folks.

Teachers at the top of the salary scale with 15 years' experience would receive a $900 bonus this year, and $400 the next. ...

And even more(!!):

Teachers will pay $19 per month for single health insurance, compared to $18.29 in the 2007-2008 contract; $38 for family health insurance instead of $36.58 in the 2009-2010 school year; those rates rise to $19.75 and $39.50 in 2010-2011. Teachers' insurance copay increases from $10 to $15 unless they go to a special clinic where the copay is $0.

Nothing like raping raking it in, eh?
