“What do you think about the administration getting a possible raise while faculty wages have been continuously cut?”

“I don’t think it’s fair that they are asking for an increase in salary while they are cutting salaries of the teachers.”

“I don’t like it because they teach us. They should be getting paid more. There are so many students here that need to get education and teachers are doing all they can to help us get out of here.”

“Well, I’m glad that it hasn’t been implemented. My understanding is that the teachers have been getting decreases on their wages and they haven’t been compensated for inflation throughout the years. So, an increase of 19.3 percent just sounds ridiculous since the teachers have taken decreases.”

“I feel that that is unfair. If … employees under you are willing to accept a pay cut, you should be willing to accept a pay cut also. You should not be expecting a pay raise.”

“I think it’s ridiculous and I feel like if you’re going to say something you should actually mean it. And I love this city and I love this school. I feel like the faculty—all the teachers I’ve had here have been great. I just think it’s unfair.”
