Money for nothing: your government at work

The LA school district pays $10 million each year in salaries to teachers who are not allowed to show up at work, let alone teach. These teachers have been accused of something, such as theft or harassment, and may receive full pay and benefits for years while the school district contemplates their cases. Meanwhile, financial shortfalls may force the district to lay off teachers who actually teach.

New York City public schools also have teachers paid not to teach. However, NYC requires them to show up at a school district building. Once there, they are permitted to do crossword puzzles.

Don't you wish that our health care was run by the government?
