They won't make the connection. Hells bells, most of these dim bulbs don't understand the difference between their paycheck and after tax take home pay.
My BIL is married to a NEA teacher (rabid lefty). She's about to retire after 30 years and she still doesn't understand what it costs an employer to have someone on the payroll. Dumb as a box of rocks in that regard.
well, when you have built in COLA raises, and your on the gubmint dime, inflation don’t matter much.
Cost of Living can go up 200% and the NEA will ensure you get a 200% raise, but it’s not a raise see... if you think it’s a raise, then your a racist.
