RIF Me, Please. I Can’t Afford to Teach.
I’m going to sound like a total a-hole, but will someone RIF me, please? If you’re one of the thousands of teachers in the LAUSD who got a Reduction in Force notice, I will happily trade my job for your un-employment.
I’ve got three year old twins and childcare runs about $600 a week. After all the furlough days that hit LAUSD teachers over the last few years, take-home pay is about $1,200 a week. So for me, after childcare, take home pay is about $600 ($280 in a five week month). Unemployment is currently $450 a week.
You get the idea?
