Teacher I used to work with before she changed districts messaged me out of the blue. They are hiring a new special education teacher at the school for severely disabled children she is at right now. The new job would require me to work with kids who are in wheelchairs and stuff like that.

The difference in pay would be at least 30%. I had a Fry moment when I was told the number.


The catch is that the school's future is a little bit up in the air since the university that contracts the school is thinking about getting out of it. Contract would be good for 3 more years but then who knows. That plus the fact that I am too invested and connected with my current district made me turn it down. I am on the leadership track where I am and just need to be patient. Still a 30% raise would be something. Nice to know I have options too.

can't use the offer as leverage for a raise?

It doesn't work like that for the government/unions. You have a pay scale based off of longevity and education.

if you work in the public sector, with public sector job benefits (like a government pension scheme or a big union), don’t try and ‘leverage’ your private sector earning potential over them, lol. you can always make more in the private sector. that’s kind of the point.

the difference is a public sector worker, or state school teacher, as it may be, can reasonably expect a job for the next 15-20 years if they put their head down. a private sector worker can take a lot more earnings but it exposes to, you know, the same market forces that can shutter a business (or school) in the space of a year or two.

just a piece of general advice. don’t tell your public or nonprofit sector boss that you could earn more in the private or for-profit sector. they will laugh you out of the office.

in mach’s case especially i could not imagine working with the severely disabled for any serious amount of time. that 30% higher earnings comes with a heavy emotional tax.
