    Wait a minute…….you mean all the commotion about the school closures is really about them losing their jobs? I thought it was about the well being of the poor poor children. I'm shocked, yes, shocked to learn this.

    Now they look for a job that pays what they're actually worth, assuming such a low paying job exists.
