    My most recent commentary raised some passion among many of you. Earlier this week I said that it pays to work for Governor Ducey, but it doesn't pay to be a teacher.  All based on a report the governor gave his staff raises of up to 20 percent while only giving a one percent raise to Arizona's teachers this year.
