D.C. teachers still trying to get paid WASHINGTON, D.C., Nov. 1  Hundreds of D.C. school teachers are still struggling to be paid.

SINCE THE SCHOOL system switched to the citys new automated payroll system, teachers who work less than 40 hours have been getting paid nothing or only portions of their paychecks. In some cases, the school systems chief financial officer has written letters explaining the problem to landlords. However, teachers say thats not enough. When the checks showed up wrong after the first pay period, angry teachers lined up at the payroll office and the school system is braced for more of the same. The payroll office on North Capitol Street will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Sunday to try to help shortchanged teachers.

Yeah, but according to all the backstepping, chickensh!t "pastors" - leaders of the flocks - (according to the article on presidential hopeful -(alright, I'M hopeful(chuckle))-North's site, Something like a loss of a PAYCHECK is "No Big Problem."

According to these pastors, nothing "major" has happened. Just wait until it's the loss of THEIR paycheck.
