$14,652 + health care benefits for 1 hour per day * 180 school days per year? He could do a lot worse than $81/hour.

/is my math off, or should I be checking for available positions?

One of the good guys of basketball.

Also, pay attention. In the near future, if you're around my age, we'll all be retiring and then taking odd jobs for benefits and/or supplemental income.

It's probably a bit harder to look for a second job when you work 7:30-8:00 AM and 2:45-3:15 PM (or whatever) every day.  Not bad hourly if you can swing it, though.

"Dantley says he took the job for the health care benefits"

Thanks, Obama.

Being a little snarky, but couldn't another local likely use that salary and benefits more than a former professional athlete?

not to mention come hail, high water, snow, sleet, wind, ice, sun, suck, freezing or broiling, you have to be there, on time, and ready to go. reliable isn't just something you do, in that job.

/i had someone on a team i led call in that they wouldn't be coming to work because they saw a spider.
//to be fair he had anxiety issues and prolly had a panic attack, but still, man...

Maybe, but the fact that the position was open might tell you something about demand for that position. The hours plus the net salary means that it's really for people that don't need the money so much; so retired people and housewives/househusbands.

Wait and see what happens when Dikembe Motumbu shows up to block the little buggers from crossing the street.

I'm shocked the NBA player's union does not cover health insurance for former players.

Health benefits for a crossing guard?

Your city will go bankrupt.

The "health benefits" might just be access to the health insurance program. Even if he pays 100% of the premium he's way ahead of someone who has to deal directly with an insurance company. When you're hired you become part of the group and get access to the insurance, no questions asked. If he tries to get insurance on his own, he's going to have problems due to his current health, his past profession, (We're not covering your knees. Or ankles. Or hips. Sorry.)
