Bernie Sanders: If we can pay baseball players hundreds of millions, teachers deserve a raise.
I fail to see the connection between the two. His point is ludicrous.
Baseball players are in the private sector, employed by entrepreneurs who get a return on the hundreds of millions they pay ballplayers. The ballplayers that make millions are the elite of the elite. They are athletes that others enjoy watching. Usually, they generate profit on their investment.
Most teachers are not extraordinary. In fact, many are dumb as sheetrock and keep their jobs because they are difficult to fire because of powerful unions that pay off politicians. Many teachers are boinking the students. Students are being warehoused, unable to pass tests that 60 years ago most students would ace.
Sanders, you seem to be a product of a crap teacher.
