With the closing and relocation of more businesses and the lost of many jobs, it doesn't make sense to give out raises at this time. I know we need teachers and what they do, but why not freeze the wages until we see who is left in the area to pay taxes.

Well, if you want a wage freeze on teachers then how about everyone in the USA? Oh, that sounds more like the government, controling everything.

I have no proof, but historically, this would have been fronted not by the teachers but by their Union. Just a thought.

Because NOT everyone receives their wages from tax payers that is why!

Anyone that earns their wages via tax payers,(State or Federal tax dollars) should be frozen...our economy is not looking very good.

With the number of businesses that are closing their doors the amount of tax money paid in will be even less than before!

How does anyone actually know what the economy is like. Just by what the Gov tells us. They tell us its bad so they can raise taxes and do what they want.

Business owners KNOW what the economy is like...when the demand for what you produce slows down and continues to do this for over 2years, you know.

When you have to down size your business and lay off your know.

You do not need the government to tell you these things.
