If you pay people to be unemployed for life,

... you get more unemployment.  1,800 New York City teachers who lost their jobs earlier this year have yet to apply for another job despite the fact that there are 1,200 openings.  New York is the only city in the U.S. where teachers are guaranteed pay for life even if their school closes and they no longer have a permanent job.

With these incentives, I think I would do my best to get fired.

  1. I'm just curious what Mr Clark's actual motivation is to keep this program going. Fear of bodily harm by NEA thugs?
