There’s no disputing this fact: teachers don’t get paid early enough and it’s total BS.

I think we can all agree on that, right?

And a lot of educators have to work second jobs to be able to pay their bills and have some extra money, which is also total BS.

A teacher’s viral video on TikTok got people talking after she said she has to work a second job on the weekends to make ends meet.

The text overlay on the video reads, “POV: You’re a 23-year-old 1st grade teacher and a Starbucks barista on the weekends.”

And if you talk to teachers out there, it sounds like a bunch of them have side gigs to supplement their income.
