Response to demtenjeep (Reply #31)

50. That's like saying I'm not paid for my 4 weeks' vacation.

Your summer is your vacation, just like everyone else's. Your salary is your annual salary, just like everyone else's. Choosing to say your salary doesn't include your vacation, is like me saying my salary doesn't include my vacation.

The test being, I guess....are you an independent contractor, so that you are let go at the end of every school year, and must re-contract for the next year and compete with other teachers? And possibly not re-hired? If that's the case, then you really are not "on vacation" during the summer. You are unemployed. If you have your job waiting for you every year, then summer is vacation for you. Just like my vacation is.
