LETTERS: Don’t complain over wages

Editor:

Re: Educated arguments, July 3 letters.

I wonder if letter-writer Susan Davidson is doing her math right.

I hope she, as a teacher of 32 years, realizes that an annual salary is just what it says it is, “annual pay.”

You can’t fool me nor an accountant. You get paid yearly in the form of a paycheque, usually the 15th and 30th of the month. This includes statutory holidays and vacation time.

So what are you complaining of?

I agree that there is an extra load that you did not sign on for all those years ago – i.e. mentally challenged students – but all the young teachers did. So get on with it.
