I'm sick to the back teeth listening to teachers whinging about their fucking jobs. If you don't like it fuck off and get another job.
You're fairly well paid considering the short days and the amount of holiday time you have (which a lot of you use to earn off the books money). You've got high job security, and you will be well looked after in retirement.
Of course you'll wheel out the educational reasons as being the reasons for your complaints, but you're a bunch of liars. You're only concerned about your take home pay.
If you keep the money what happens to other sectors? Will we take from health to give to education? Or from social welfare? Yeah that's a good idea. Lets take from the most vulnerable people in society so the recession doesn't affect us.
I'm using the teachers here as an example, but there's nurses sitting on their holes in Cashel hospital which was closed in 2007, and they're still getting paid. Lets wheel them to the front of the next bitch fest on Kildare St. and ask them some hard questions.
We're a country full of whingebags who are still living in a FF utopia of low taxes and easy money. Of course they didn't cause the recession, but neither did I and I'm getting fucked by it too. If everybody would bloody well pull together we might get out of this mess quicker.
