    An argument that teacher salaries are low relative to alternatives careers is shown in the following table developed in a policy brief for California math and science teachers.

    It's good that people with math skills have multiple potential ways for them to earn a living, yes? According to the law of supply and demand, lower pay for teachers must mean that more people with these skills are available to serve the public as teachers than to serve industries. Does someone argue differently?
