She said that. Really!
This is the same woman who said teachers should be grateful for last spring's budget repair bill, which for most teachers meant a 6-12% cut in pay.
For her reference, people earning $250,000 a year are in the top 1% of households in this country, and in the top 1/2 of 1% in this state. It is five times Wisconsin's median household income (which itself is already higher than an average teacher's salary) and ten times Wisconsin's per capita income. I worked as a teacher for seven years before my lifetime salary first topped $250,000.
