An interesting article in today's Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
The question has once again risen about paying fired police officers while they are appealing their cases.
I agree with the mayor of Milwaukee when he states:
"If you're fired and charged with a crime, you don't get paid," he said. "That's the way it works in America."
The question that I have of the mayor is whether or not he supports the same when it comes to school teachers.
I think it is a fair question- Would the mayor insist that a school teacher be paid during the entire appellate process, even if they are charged with a crime or not?
How would WEAC feel if the mayor answers this question as "yes"?
