Very soon they will be making Zero.

That would depend, as always, on where the school district is.

The same as teachers, I would hope, as they're required to have teaching credentials. Public Library librarians make squat. I'm a librarian in the private sector since that is where the (relative) money is.

Because you need teaching credentials to SHUSH people?

It really depends on the area. In states like California and Massachusetts, school librarians generally make more than teachers as they are required to have a master's degree above their teaching credential. Here in the Bay Area, most school librarians make around $70K or so.
Public librarian pay varies WILDLY depending on area. Florida librarians make about $38K a year, whereas librarians in California generally start at $53K. I know a few librarians with more than 10 years of experience, and supervisory responsibilities, that make over $90K.

Probably more than some teachers as they need to have Masters Degree in Library Science and thus get more than BA level educator.

Enough that they can have it covered up when they kill people in car accidents.

I made $72,000 as a law librarian for a law firm in Washington DC.

It's a dying field. Consider some other line of work.

Such low standards, R12.

Depends on the education level required by the school district. My mom was a librarian in a rural area which had a legal loophole whereby they could pay city workers less than minimum wage. Despite having a four year degree, she was paid two dollars less than minimum wage for years and referred to her job (teaching children how to read) as "charity work". When the city workers unionized, she started making minimum wage.
Have you ever noticed that the people who do the tangible, indispensable work get treated like complete shit in this country?

In my area, teachers make about $95,000 and get full benefits and summers off.

R20, many years ago, my aunt was a school nurse in a high school in Westchester county in NY (an upper middle class neighborhood). She was an RN. The school had budget cuts. She was laid off and then rehired as a nursing assistant at minimum wage.
Schools, like health care, are freebies, which no one wants to pay for.

Why OP... are you a spinster?
|by Anonymous||reply 24||09/08/2013|
Middle-aged OP wants to know because he wants to leave his high-stress job, and just assumes that teaching and other allied professions are far, far easier. All that's keeping him from half-heartedly taking a position from another person that honestly enjoys and cares about students and learning? The salary. He will only take something that allows him to continue his extravagant lifestyle.
Oh, and he's probably from New York too.

"Librarian? This would imply there is a library. It would further imply that there are books. Both things left most schools in about 1994."
Are you really that big of an idiot? There ARE still libraries in schools. There ARE still books in schools. You're a moron.
