What a surprise a grifter is going to grift on his way out the door.
It’s always gratifying to discover that your immediate guess about the political and ideological affiliation of yet another brazen grifter in public office turns out to be accurate.
There’s a Grifter thread here somewhere…
More like “The gig is up, grab the cash box on the way out the door” style of running out from a home poker game that you’ve fleeced everyone on during a break to let tempers cool down.
Hell, I’d quit my job, too, if they offered me 2/3 of a million dollars to leave.
I saw they fired some college coach and he got like $37 million out of it.
It’s one thing to have a private company waste their money on golden parachutes, but educational institutions? GTFO.
His salary was increased to $315,000 in July, after the school board voted to terminate his contract early and grant him a new five-year deal, over outrage from community members.
Meanwhile, on Earth 1:
As much as the right-wing claims to hate socialism and welfare queens, they sure do seem to know how to grab more than their fair share of tax payers money.
Population of Bucks County, where the school is located, is only 625,249, so he’s getting more than $1 a person actually living there.
Median income for a household there is $59.727, giving this doorstop 10 1/2 full year salaries. I’m sure that’ll help balance the local budget.
And looking just a little bit more, the highest paid teacher, which is 16 years of of experience plus a masters with 30+ hours, makes $116,586. The average teacher makes around $65,000, a 10th of his payout.
They also voted to ban trans kids from sports.
Just after they lost control of the board in this month’s elections. Locals are calling it the revenge agenda.
Yeah our priorities might be just a tiny bit out of whack. In other related news, Texas A&M fired their football coach. His severance? $77 million. Man, I want a job where I can be set for life by doing such a bad job that I get fired.
Isn’t “severance” what someone gets when they are laid off or otherwise have their employment contract terminated prior to the end? How exactly is this supposed to work that he quit, he initiated the separation and breaking the contract. Why would he get anything at all? Why would anyone even refer to it as “severance”?
It’s one thing to see the huge payouts when someone is fired and they’re presumably getting some form of what they would have gotten to complete a contract. Even if that was an absurd amount to do the job to begin with.
It’s an entire different thing for someone to quit and then get a payout for that. I’m not even sure how that would be structured.
Oh, to be able to quit my job and have my employer pay me the next year or two’s salary anyway.
This shows us exactly where priorities lie. This is a list of the top paid state employees by state. Quite often the top three salaries go to college football coaches.
why should he also receive a $50K “settlement”? HE RESIGNED. something stinks here.
I’ll lead A&M to a losing season for a mere $35 million. A bargain, really!
It really is.
But speaking for myself, when I am wrong and the offender is a liberal, I
I want that person held accountable.
Problem we run into is that the Rs seemingly don’t do the same and the will turn a blind eye if that person is useful to pass more fascist legislation. The moral high ground really hurts sometimes.
That’s the difference: when a Dem like Menendez acts in a similarly sleazy way, we’re right there condemning them. That includes the BB Authors, who state up front that the creep in question is a Dem.
The Pennridge School District has failed to protect children of color and LGBTQ students from harassment, and policies rescinding diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives, banning Pride flags and restricting which bathrooms transgender people can use have only worsened the discrimination, a federal complaint says.
The complaint, filed Wednesday by the Education Law Center and the University of Pennsylvania Carey Law School’s Advocacy for Racial and Civil Justice Clinic, asks the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights to order the Bucks County district to take a series of actions.
This isn’t socialism. Socialism helps the wrong people. /s
