That's crazy. Over here they are considerably less, and what's more, they work. (Or don't as the case may be, and then do once they get paid what they want )
You muricans get ripped off, even by the people who are meant to be looking out for you.

Edit: to illustrate, my wife is a teacher and pays $12.70 a week (NZD, so that's more like $8 USD), and union action resulted in a 18.5% pay rise over two years (admittedly, it was way overdue).
