Utah lawmakers have nerve

How nice for our lawmakers to give themselves a $20 a day pay raise! Is that the raise our teachers should be getting? Are we the people of this state getting any sort of a "guarantee" with this raise? Are the lawmakers of this state giving us any sort of accountability clause?

I cannot believe the nerve on Capitol Hill. Teachers and educators have to fight tooth and nail to get any sort of support, and now we know why. How can we improve our education system when our legislators are too busy giving themselves raises. As a citizen and a parent, I am disgusted. Where is the money being spent? I guess we have our answer. And by the way, I am not a teacher.Nikki Richards
