Advice for strikers

While reading the news story “Shaler Area teachers take to the picket line” (Sept. 4 and TribLIVE.com), it became obvious that the teachers collectively feel they are worth more than their $56,362 average salary and their excellent, minimal-cost health insurance. Since they are all on strike, they must unanimously feel the same self-worth.

If their assumptions are correct, they should all resign and go find those better jobs. Just think how much better their lives will be with more pay and equally good health insurance while still getting their paid time off, such as eight weeks in the summer, a week for the December holidays, spring break, numerous holidays throughout the school year and lastly, a generous number of sick days — whether they're sick or not.

Rise up! Show that school board what you're worth by bolting for those better nine-months-a-year jobs. By the way, good luck with that. However, be prepared to be fired from that new job if you can't cut it.
