    Not in the private sector even private schools do not pay teachers for staying home in the summer

    Private sector jobs are not apid with tax payer money while public sector jobs are paid with tax payer money

    Tax payer money is "other people' money which means those who decide to give that money away do not take it seriously because it is not their money to begin with

    Instead they buy favors and votes with it.

    Right now giving it away loses votes and the public sector employees are crying like nursery school brats.

    Gov. Chris Christie says school budget election results are proof that N.J. voters want change

    Published: Wednesday, April 21, 2010, 1:47 PM

    TRENTON -- Gov. Chris Christie today seized on historic school budget results as evidence that voters support his broader reform agenda. Christie, who played a prominent role in the defeat of a majority of school budgets statewide, said New Jerseyans sent "an extraordinarily clear signal" that they will not tolerate excessive government spending or tax increases, even for the K-12 schools they have long supported. He called the unofficial 58 percent rejection rate "a seismic change that reflects, I believe, a changed attitude in New Jersey." "They've had enough. They want real, fundamental change," Christie said at a noon press conference. "We didn't lead in that regard. We merely gave voice to what the people of New Jersey were already feeling." The freshman Republican governor slashed aid to local school districts by $820 million in his proposed budget, but urged them not to hike property taxes to make up the difference. Christie advised voters to reject budgets in districts where teachers did not agree to take a one-year wage freeze and contribute at least 1.5 percent of their salary to their health benefits.

    Today, he said both the wage freeze issue and fury at rising property taxes resonated with voters. He rejected a nonpartisan analysis, cited by the New Jersey Education Association, which said districts would still face a big shortfall even if all teachers took the freeze. Christie said it's still possible for districts to do other "belt-tightening" and have minimal property tax increases.

    "It can be done and it should be done, and I believe it will be done in a lot of districts across New Jersey," Christie said.

    In districts where the budget was rejected, he said he hopes municipal governing bodies now charged with reviewing the budgets will serve as "a new and honest broker in this conversation."

    Christie used the occasion to push for legislative approval of a package of reforms, including sending to voters a constitutional amendment limiting annual property tax hikes to 2.5 percent. He also wants to trim pensions and benefits for current public workers and change the collective bargaining process to give towns and school boards more control.

    "We must arm the school boards. We must arm the municipal governments with the tools they need," he said. "We need to give (voters) the opportunity to control their own property taxes."

    The entire package, part of his $29.3 billion budget proposal, will be waiting for the Democrat-controlled Legislature when it returns to full session in May, Christie said.

    That's obvious. Can you skip for 6 weeks in any job? Yes if you use the Family Medical Leave Act or Maternity leave. No one can fire you for that in any job.

    @ Dark Night. Try leaving your house sometime. You can get fired from public sector job. They just can't fire you because you aren't a kiss ***.

  • Without the private sector the public sector job wouldnt exist.

    About $4-10hr wage difference. And public sector jobs double check their employees for illegals.

    Sure. Wall Street. None of those guys have real jobs. They push around pieces of paper all day, fabricating circumstances that don't even exist -- and make billions off of it. Yeah, there's a real job for you.

    The difference between a public and a private sector job is that there are minimum standards of hiring for public sector jobs. Which, of course, is why we are seeing the seething resentment from conservatives who couldn't pass the muster.

    You have no fear of being fired from a public sector job no matter how poor your job performance is. Just look at our education system. Teachers never get fired for delivering such terrible results.

    @Jayleen: Hahaha! How presumptuous of you. Yes, I live in my mom's basement, playing WoW and frequenting YA! How did you know I never get out? You can see all that from your computer monitor?
