Laura's Corner

I work very hard and am attending college to obtain my degree in the Human Service field. Writing makes me feel alive and gives me the opportunity to touch those whom I would not be able to otherwise. Last but not least, I have been blessed with two amazing daughters who love me completely and support my dreams. Feel free to contact me with questions, concerns or feedback.

WA-WM Superintendent Mr. Wachholz

My name is Karen and I am Laura's "Guest Blogger"!    I wrote her after seeing the article on regarding the pay increase of 11.7% for Mr. Wachholz, the West Allis-West Milwaukee School Superintendent.  I had asked Laura to write about it and see what the taxpayers of West Allis think.  That is when she invited me to do the blog, so here I am! 


This article ruffled a few of my feathers, as do a lot of these "great" ideas brought about by the school district.  However, this one is different.  The last time I checked people were losing jobs, companies putting freezes on pay raises, and people were getting laid-off.  Families are finding it harder and harder to provide for their families.  All of this due to the economy going downhill.  But Mr. Wachholz gets an extra $7,500 for July 1, 2007- June 30, 2008 and than another increase of $6,000 for July 1, 2008 to June 30, 2010 bringing his pay to $147, 500 the first year of the contract.  Hold on, that is just the FIRST year.  The school board will raise his wage again for the second year of the contract because "wages cannot be less than the previous school year".
