so teachers have the guts but with no reason.
If they have reason for a pay raise, simply say they deserve more instead of saying that the students benefits is what they fighting for.

my job is like that. Actually more like 10%

Avg > 10% increase every year here so far, and above 75k..... but not GUARENTEED... not no pressure... don't have 3 months off every year... no collective bargaining... and tons of OT....

Yeah I know your job is awesome, want some referal bonus?

1) Yes and no, I wouldn't mind paying more Property Taxes to fund education, but no personal income increases until the problems in my answer no. 2 are fixed.
2) For starters, change how capital gains are taxed, and get rid of Carried Interest.

Before you threaten me with more taxes, do yourself a flavor by finding out income tax rate + payroll taxes rate for working people and those of a hedge fund manager.  But that is properly too advance for you, because it is not chewed and spoon feed to your month.  It does require facts checking using google search engine.

If you are the subject teachers are dealing with, the rates for psychiatrists apply here.

Minister of Education says that they save $11 million each day because of the teachers' strike

For 11 million dollar =  TD bank CEO for a year.

I am sure Ed Clark works very hard, hourly rate wise, by Jan 2, TD bank CEO will earn annual salary of a Teacher.  Call it greed or whatever, these people are just trying to make ends meet here in Vancouver.

It is not bank robbery, so hold your horses.

Depends on where you comparing to?

Here, I don't think entry level CSR in bank can make that much.
