Hundreds of DC teachers protest pay

Teachers in the District say they deserve more pay and better benefits.

WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - Hundreds of teachers rallied at Freedom Plaza Friday morning, saying they deserve more pay and better benefits.

Union members rejected a compensation offer last week. They said it falls far short of what they need.

Teachers claim they haven't had a raise in five years.

According to Salary.com, the median teacher salary in D.C. is about S58,000 a year.
