L.A. school board gets 73% pay increase
A little-known compensation panel decides that only those who agree not to hold down other jobs will be entitled to it, however.
July 28, 2007
An obscure citizens panel voted Friday to hike the annual pay of Los Angeles Unified School District board members by 73%, increasing it from roughly $26,000 to nearly $46,000 — but only for board members who agree not to hold down other jobs.
The Charter Amendment L Compensation Review Committee rebuffed a last-minute request for a much bigger salary boost by Los Angeles City Councilman Jose Huizar, who asked that school board members receive as much as $90,000 a year.
And where is the money going to come from? What will be taken away from the kids to pay for the adults greed?
The parents of every student in the Los Angeles School District should be up in arms and protesting loudly!
