  •  The real problem... (5+ / 0-)

    ...is that you two are arguing about teachers vs. doctors when the real problem is Wall Street banksters who make literally A THOUSAND TIMES MORE than they do.

    The '60s were simply an attempt to get the 21st Century started early; don't mistake an unfulfilled dream for a lost one. A dream has no deadline!

    •  And they deserve it (0+ / 0-)

      Under the same metrics that determine the teacher and doctor salaries.

      If they didn't perform a service of value, no one would pay them those salaries.

      •  You are confusing real value... (0+ / 0-)

        such as that which teachers and doctors provide and fictitious value a.k.a rent extraction which is where most of the profits on Wall Street comes from. Before the 1980s, Wall Street salaries were not very different from professional careers. Ask yourself why this is no longer the case.
