Over 50 years ago I interviewed with the school board for my first teaching position in a small town.
I was immediately told they did not allow any teachers their school to belong to a union.
Each teacher was to negotiate his or her own salary and that salary was to be kept in strict confidence.
I was able to bargain them up to $1,800 a year!
Later, I learned I was making more than the teacher who had been with them for 30 years, but who “didn't squabble over salary.”
