Ridgewood NJ,  everyone in the Village remembers the contract talks for teachers salaries. Over the years there have been threats to strike , non signing of recommendation letters and so on, but this takes the cake yesterday the  Star-Ledger reported the NJEA president Ed Richardson is making $1.2 million in salary and benefits .

Once again New Jersey taxpayers are sucker punched and teachers are forced to cough up almost $1000 in union dues for Richardson and his buddies at the top to play around with.  Property taxes go higher and people vote with their feet.

Only in a state like New Jersey can an organization like NJEA continue to exist unfettered without ever having to answer to anyone about its unfettered power and intimidation.

  1. It’s not so much as a sucker punch but really just being sucker in general. YOU let the unions dictate policy round here because YOU bought into Ridgewood and the long standing myth of the excellent schools, leafy streets and Barney Fife walking about. And then you don’t vote or engage in what happens not only in the state but in the very same place you bought into. And now your going to bitch about it? You expect change? This scam has taken years to perfect and the bottom line is… you’ve been had. Now, get back on the train and keep moving. Nothing to see here.

  2. Do it fer da Kidz NJEA president .

  3. 10:12 Good points quite direct with both barrells. Truth hurts though
