It's a business

Overall the teacher's salaries (for foreign teachers) is a joke and becoming more ridiculous by the day. I also agree this site provides lots of valuable information to many foreign teachers here/coming here to teach. The fact is I am sure you do not contact all the newspapers, TV & radio stations every time you read, see or hear something stupid from the media. The point I'm trying to make is that this site, as with all other forms of media, have the right to earn a profit from their business and earn a salary for their labor as well as for their employees, just like you and me have the right to do the same. The one cool thing I really like is that we do not have to work for these ridiculous salaries, visit these websites, read these newspapers etc. That's right - we all have choices. Why not contact the ridiculous employer offering these stupid, low and ridiculous salaries and tell them what you really think of them and tell them what they can do with their funny farm? Don't shoot the messenger. Take your complaint to the source.
