FTFA: While many teachers are excited about the incentive, some non-vaccinated teachers told KRDO they don't think it was fair they were left out.
"It was like a slap in the face to me," Janet Hidalgo, who says she is unvaccinated for medical reasons, told KRDO. "It's not easy work in education. We don't get paid enough right now. So to dangle $1,000 over somebody's face saying 'get your vaccine' is bribery to me."


[grupy_cat_good.jpg]

And by Karen's Janet's assessment of the situation, I'm guessing her "medical reasons" for not getting vaccinated are related to chronic stupidity. It's not supposed to be a slap in the face. It's supposed to be a reward for those who did the right thing for the kids and coworkers, as well as an incentive for those who could've, but didn't.

/ the only ones getting left out unintentionally are those who can't get it for actual, verifiable medical reasons

My district also provided a $1000 stipend for vaccinations. I almost felt guilty getting paid for a sensible thing I had already done.
Almost.
 
2021-12-01 7:22:59 PM  
I got vaccinated months ago and all I got was vaccinated.
 
2021-12-01 7:23:44 PM  
Holy fark--that's like a 30% bonus in some districts.

/yeah, sarcasm
//but seriously, teachers need to be paid more

No, you dipshiat.  It's a reward for doing the right thing.  For thinking beyond yourself.  Suck up and deal, snowflake.  You couldn't be bothered, so sucks to be you!

You know what would make this even more effective? Dock the pay of the plaguerats and divert every penny of that into funding the bonuses for the rational teachers..
 
2021-12-01 7:29:55 PM  
I prefer the "carrot and stick" approach: Reward good behavior via a bonus for getting vaccinated, and punish bad behavior, like unpaid leave for the dummies.

Alternatively, they could use the Malcolm Tucker "carrot and stick" approach, which in this case involves shoving the carrot up the ass of each unvaccinated employee, followed by the stick, followed by an even bigger, rougher, carrot.

Either method, I'm fine.

Dock their pay AND put them on leave, or whatever is allowed via their union agreements. If you're not vaccinated, you can't be near my kids, period.

I got the vaccine as soon as I could and all I got was this lousy protection from a deadly and highly contagious virus. :-/
 
2021-12-01 7:42:13 PM  
I know a teacher and I think they didn't get the vaccine judging from their Facebook shares and number of times they've been in Facebook jail in the past year. In their state, teachers were in line after healthcare and senior, but didn't make a status they were vaccinated. Wonder what would happen if their school district offered them a $1,000 bonus. They obviously would take the money to shop at Nordstrom.

In the truly herpy dederpy states, the teachers who haven't been vaccinated are given a bonus and assigned to teach only anti-CRT classes.

Torn a little here, on one hand glad to see teachers get some extra money, on the other can't believe any educators who are good at thier job would need to be bribed to get the vaccine.
 
2021-12-01 7:47:49 PM  
Hopefully this is more of a reward because everyone is vaxxed and not a bribe to get plague rats to vax up. In the first scenario all of your teachers are decent human beings. In the second scenario: why the fark are you letting plague rats have jobs and not pelting them with rotten cafeteria food?

Kaiser Permanente is an example of a large medical organization, with hundreds of thousands of employees, that doesn't take any BS when it comes to religious or medical exemptions for vaccinations. The latest numbers I can find for them:

"As of October 30, more than 93% of our employees are now vaccinated. Approximately 1% of our active workforce have declined to respond and are now on unpaid leave; they have until December 1 to respond to the vaccine requirement." (source)

They won't complete firing employees with neither vaccinations nor exemptions until January so the final numbers aren't known yet, but it does seem to show that less than 6% of workers genuinely need medical or religious exemptions for vaccinations.

Some teachers should be glad they don't get paid more, especially when they first started.  They wouldn't have been able to get hired.  After all, if the career paid more then some of them wouldn't have been able to compete on the job market.  Those already in positions protected by anti-performance evaluation unions might think they're safe, but higher pay could bring more expectations for performance evaluations and low performers will truly stand out against their high performing peers.

Nice to hear. They always seem to be doing the right thing. I know there was a lot of worry they would shut down after the fire.
