All 3,400 teachers Buffalo, New York's school district are eligible for full medical coverage on any plastic surgery through their workers’ insurance plan. Everything from breast implants to Botox, is completely covered for them... paid by the taxpayers.
Last year alone, $5.9 million dollars’ worth of cosmetic surgery was performed on the teachers. An unbelievable number compared to the projected $42 million deficit the school district will have this year.
The teachers union stands behind the plastic surgery policy, stating the teachers have been working without a contract for the last ten years and until Buffalo is ready to negotiate, they will continue to see their plastic surgeons.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
