We Didn't Create the Double Standard, We Invented It

Chalk one more up for union hypocrisy. . .

The United Federation of Teachers has charged the Bloomberg administration and Schools Chancellor Joel Klein with civil-rights violations for sending out notices to lay off mostly minority school aides to close a budget gap while at the same time hiring six-figure white educrats.

However, a New York Post analysis found that "a whopping 85 percent of the union's highest-compensated management staff are white, and 15 percent are minorities.

That's a far greater racial disparity than the teaching work force, which is about 60 percent white and 40 percent minority."

Go there and read how much money the top 50 union officals are making in New York City and you may realize that you picked the wrong career track. Oh, the moral superiority of not drawimg down a $200,000 + salary. I have to keep this in mind the next time some union PR hack accuses me of supporting programs that lead to "profits on the backs of children."
