Letter: Dog walker shouldn’t out-earn teacher

 

08/24/02 -- At the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League on Military Trail in West Palm Beach, dog training volunteer Bonnie Peacock (cq) of Jupiter works with a male dalmation named Jake. The ARL has 75 dog-training volunteers who have given 3500 hours of training time to 1400 dogs. (The ARL has a total of about 400 volunteers, including cat socializers and dog walkers.) "It is very satisfying when you work with a dog and then you see him go home with a family," says Nielsen.  "It is good to know your small amount of work with the dog made a difference." BRUCE R.

In reference to the article that substitute teachers are paid $13.50 per hour (“Substitutes in county earn less than bus drivers,” April 25), I did some research and found that my friend’s daughter is paid $15 for walking one dog.

Priorities, people; priorities.
