OPRF teacher salaries (and presumably their related pensions) have gone up an unconscionable and obnoxious 33% percent in the past 5 years at the same time wages of the average tax payer have remained stagnant. While D200's money grab proceeded full strength, for the rest of us it's been raining for the past 5 years.
