Teacher Posts Salary on Facebook, Asks Why She's Paid so Little Even With a College Degree

Fed up with low pay and nearly meaningless salary bumps, an Arizona teacher posted her salary to Facebook alongside an exasperated message, according to multiple reports this week. Whispering Wind Academy teacher Elisabeth Milich wrote her pay was not a living wage. A picture of paperwork, apparently revealing her pay of $35,490 per year, showed her getting an additional $131 in pay the next year after taking developmental classes, according to Arizona newspaper The Republic. Milich has since deleted the photo.
