The district announced Tuesday afternoon that it has begun recruiting K-12 Oregon licensed teachers from around the state to fill in for teachers in the classroom if there is a strike. It posted an advertisement for substitute teachers on its website saying it would pay about $171 per five-hour shift and a per diem for expenses and weekly round-trip mileage reimbursement.
They are counting on all of the young idiot recent graduates of the several Portland-area colleges to come in and scab since teaching jobs are few and far between.
However, teachers and administrators have LONG memories, and I would NEVER consider crossing the picket line knowing that to interview for any jobs available, certified or classified, requires going in front of a committee of administrators and teachers. Not smart.
