    school employees to private concerns with the bait of more $$$.

    Many in public education will have to face the decision of whether to cross over to the "dark side."  

    That is, of course, if something isn't done to derail the corporate raid on public education.

      in the biotech research fields. Lots of folks wonder why the hell they are going to deal with $38K a year at best with lousy benefits as a post doc in your early 30's even at Tier 1 schools and a decade of student loan debt and interest. Go work in industry and make $80k instead. Some of that is due to mandated salaries from government grants too. Can make no more than "X" as your starting salary.
