This morning KPFA interviewed Dr. Vigil, Mercedes Faraj and Maribel Herredia. Of course, Dr. Vigil wouldn't come on the air WITH Mercedes and Maribel....so, he was interviewed separately. When asked about health benefits, Dr. Vigil explained that we pay our own benefits. He continued to say that he has to pay his own benefits too. He said it at least three times. The interviewer asked what the average salary of Hayward teachers is. He said $65,000. What he wasn't asked...and what he didn't volunteer was that HE MAKES $229,500 PER YEAR!!!! He can afford to pay for his benefits!!!! Follow the instructions below to hear the interview.
