$250 day? What fantasy land do you live in? most of those workers are making around $13 an hour or so, not $31 an hour.
Sheesh do you ever look at what California actually pays its workers? Not much, really, at least not non-cops.
When I Was teaching college, I made about $58 an hour. Sounds like a lot, right? Except that as a part-time instructor, I was not allowed
work more than six "hours" a week. That's six classroom hours, not real hours. Add in prep time, grading, counseling, and ancillary paperwork, and
it works out to eating at least three hours per class hour, which reduces the pay rate to $14 an hour, with no bennies, no healthcare. Part-timers
make up most of the college and university staffs.
So I'm not sure where people get these insane ideas about overpaid teachers and such.
