Re: OT: What should someone make per hour?

Great topic.

I am by no means an economist but I believe that a wage that is paid out by the free market is fair.

I do however have a big problem with a wage that is forced onto the taxpayer via a strike.

Example - I have many teacher friends, but I know for a fact that if they could not hold our school age children hostage their wage would be much lower today. Now in Alberta, young teachers (less than 10 years) are losing their jobs because the ATA demanded higher wages, and there is only so much money allocated to the Ministry of Education.

This is a huge cost to the taxpayer and to individuals as well. In our experience about 25 years ago my brother had to move to another jurisdiction (were there were no teachers on strike) to finish his grade 12 year. My parents had to buy him a used vehicle (rural and no busing provided) and pay rent, food, etc., so that he would not lose a year and could continue on to University.

To get a higher wage in a situation like this completely stinks... IMHO.

I'm sure that there are thousands of stories out there were individuals have been hurt dearly over strikes...but I digress...
