But if the story had the correct facts, you would feel differently. Teachers are not upset becuase it came as a lump sum. We knew that from day 1! We were always told it was going to be a lump sum. What we are upset about is the fact that the negotiations between DCPS and DTU stated that ONLY 10% would be taken from the supplement. (NOT a bonus) About 3% for our retirement and 7% for FICA. This was NEVER meant to be taxed as a regular paycheck...yet it was. We feel deceived and taken advantage of. That is why people are so upset. And to LO61903..I guess people do like to complain...you're complaining that you haven't gotten a raise in three years. Well guess what, you wouldn't even have a job if it weren't for a teacher. I think it's time we finally show some appreciation for those that help others make a living for themselves.

Some people just like to complain. I haven't had a raise or a bonus for three years, so I wouldn't gripe about getting any kind extra money. It's still more than they had to begin with, plus they're getting it right before Christmas. And like the lawyer said, it's all taxed the same, whether bit by bit, or in a lump sum. The final amount is still the same.
