This is what I was saying. I also didn't call you personally immoral (I don't know you at all) but advising people to take jobs they are unqualified for when students are at stake is not something I am ok with, and i think doing so is not good. Your positions sound fantastic but are not realistic. It's like trying to have a debate on superpowers. Sure I think flying would be awesome, but I can't grow wings. So I guess i could build a jet pack. To do that I'd have to study various fields of engineering, secure financing, and survive all of the test flights. That's about the same as what your suggesting become installed in a country of 50 states. These states are basically run like their own countries. So actually it's more like enacting policies across the European Union, but doubled. Except our "countries" can't leave. Since you want to return to the original question, it was how to band together to generate higher wages in states with low wages. You could get a bunch of people together who demand to be paid better. That's realistic. We couldn't get all 50 states to agree what color a classroom should be painted if we only gave them one choice.
