Stocking books for cash

So, what is the houly rate for stocking library books during the summer?

In the Olentangy School District, it appears that the cost to taxpayers can be as high as $71 per hour. Seems excessive, yet that's the cost.

The school board once again approved extended contracts for librarians and counselors. The individuals receiving these contracts are paid their yearly salary divided by 185 days, not divided by the 260 days that are standard in the productive sectors ... er, I mean private sectors of the economy.

Add in the district's contribution for retirement and the taxpayers can end up paying $71 per hour ... to stock books.

Seems excessive, because it is.
