If there ever was a doubt what the Mackinac Center and the Koch Brothers think of you and the work you do, that doubt has passed. Ex-MEA member Rob Wiersema argues in an August 17th Lansing State Journal Op Ed that you should lose your salary schedule:
The step scale system also distorts the true market value of teachers. Most of us, including myself (sic) are paid above market value…Because wages are high, districts must restrict the number of teachers hired.
Wiersema is not some lone advocate. He has long served as a mouthpiece for the Mackinac Center and is spending his summer speaking on their behalf to defund the MEA.
