It's not based on feelings.  Statistical data does say past English teachers were better off than English teachers today on the exact same salary.  Numbers don't care about feelings.  Defensiveness doesn't hide that things are worse for those now than in the past.  Arguing doesn't change what is necessary to push back and make things better.  Of course making things better does take time and doesn't happen the first time you try to act on it.

Okay, cool. And, as I have said multiple times, I don't care. I do not live in the past. I am better off working as an English teacher for 2.1 than I would be at any other starting position in the states. Again, I don't care if past English teachers had it better. We live in the present, not the past.

Good for you.  I like making more and having a better quality life.  But whatever floats your boat.

Finally, hangook has acknowledged other people have other priorities and has not expressed his derision at them for not having his best interests in mind.  Took a lot of banging of heads off the wall but we got there.  This topic can now been put to bed.  Good night everyone.

A shame.  I am surprised some folks don't want better for themselves and their future.  But to each their own.  Good night.
