Big Payout for Ex-Union Chief
You might think I'd have something snarky to say about this payment Randi received, but I don't think it's excessive. She earned it. In fact, given how good she is at her job, she's probably massively underpaid relative to the millions (billions?) of dollars over time that she's delivered to her members. My beef with her isn't that she's bad at her job, but rather the fact that her job involves regularly throwing kids under the bus, whenever their interests conflict with the interests of her members:
Randi Weingarten, the former head of the New York City teachers' union, received $194,188 last year from the United Federation of Teachers for unused sick days and vacation time accrued before she left to become president of the American Federation of Teachers, boosting her total compensation to more than $600,000 for 2010.
