Teachers in our district just found out that we will be taking a pay cut effective immediately. The amount of the cut varies for everyone, ranging from basically nothing to more than $500 per check. If I've calculated correctly, I'll be down around $200 per check (around $400 per month). The superintendent sent out a big email to everyone basically saying that we should be happy that he isn't requiring us to pay back what we've already been paid so far this year. Although I usually love my chosen profession in general and my job specifically, stuff like this makes me very unhappy.
