New Math: Redux

Some cold, hard facts:

  • In New York State, unemployment benefits are calculated with a byzantine formula, but top out at about $405 per week.  
  • Nearly every school in the Capital Region requires substitute teachers to have a Bachelor's degree, and many require a teaching certificate.
  • The average per diem salary for a substitute teacher is $85.
  • $85/day x 5 days/week is $425/week, before taxes.
  • Sometimes the math really sucks.
