Loudoun County, a suburb of Washington, D.C., thanked their teachers for all their hard work and extra efforts over the pandemic. Yes, they all got a heartfelt letter and a commemorative “challenge” coin. At the same time, Loudoun County divvied out 1.6 million dollars to all the school administrators and school principals.

Nothing new here. Bosses got big bonuses and the workers got a coin they can’t spend anywhere.
