    Eh Idk. Teachers here in my state, after getting a bachelors degree, only make 32,000 a year starting out. Maybe when the actual teachers start earning more, then the janitors with no degree can get more. And nothing against janitors at all. My grandmother was one, and I know they have a tough job. I just don't think they should make more than the teachers who went to school for four or more years.

    Seems like they are doing pretty good. If you boil that down, it's $14+ an hour x40 hrs a week at 52 weeks a year. They get between 2-3 months off and medical/dental. To be honest, they get more per hour then I do and I risk my life when I go to work.

    Custodians work year round - in Calif $14 is just doing ok -- Teachers make around $76.000 average --The custodians also risks his life with all all the horrible kids with guns and knives and of course infectious diseases

    Yeah pay them $100,000 dollars a year since they went the extra mile for that PHD and all. And the cashiers at McDonalds should bring down at least $85,000 a year, it's such a busy place, you know it makes them weary. I'm surprised in a backwards socialist state like California it's not a law already.

    I agree -- School custodians should make more than Mcdonalds Workers -- It takes a few years of education to become a professional Custodian !!! I would think $50,000 a year is a good start in todays economy !! $100, 000 is too much !! Get real !!

    Most have had some college --and all the training to become a Public School Custodian is terrible and they have to keep their training upgraded each year too as technology advances and changes .
