Public servants typically don't make much money, there pension is a joke. Teacher's don't make money, in the private sector, they could easily double or triple their income, but they do something they love. Stop the government from making a failed education system that much worse by cutting teacher's pay, wiping out pension, and cramming as many students as they can into one teachers classroom. This isn't the way to work out of an economic depression, this is the way you make the empire fall.
