If you are a member of the "circle of trust", 250,000 is barely enough to get by.

If you are a teacher, however... your 75 thousand (pay and benefits) is extravagant and needs to be reduced.

_________________

Two points...first I would say $75,000 a year teachers (pre-benefits here in Md.) live a life closer to the $250,000 per year crowd than the $250,000 crowd is to the $1,000,000 per year.

I'd put both as middle class.

Second is that the teachers are paid for only 9 months work and are paid with tax dollars. So you can't compare a public part-time worker to someone in the private sector.

BONUS THIRD POINT --- the $75,000 a year teacher, does deserve their salary more than the $250,000 a year member of Congress or $400,000 a year salary the President gets.
