I can weigh in on the teacher topic as I teach Kindergarten in Maryland. I’ve taught in Vermont, California, Florida, and Texas and all the experiences have been different. I loved Florida (weather and good friends) but the day my wife told me that she was pregnant I had to go to my principal and let him know that I had to start looking for jobs in other states because we couldn’t afford Florida on mine and my wife’s income. They fuck teachers hard in that state because it’s a giant retirement community. Voters don’t care about kids, they dealt with that shit when they were parents. I moved to Texas which sucked because it was Texas but they paid well and we were ok. We moved to Maryland to be close to family and I analyzed the numbers and decided we could build a life here, which we have been. I am perfectly happy with the amount of money that I make for the job that I do. I don’t follow the unions rules and will do extra if I’m asked. I get that some people don’t and it bugs be for sure. There are people who complain for the sake of complaining and make it out to be much more difficult than it truly is. Every job has hardships, we aren’t a special breed, and you won’t see me bitching on social media because I know that things could always be worse.
