Teachers in the country went on strike.
It is expected that on Wednesday, about 15 thousand teachers will participate in mass rallies in the centre of Ljubljana, to tell the government that their work is undervalued.
“We demand that the average teacher’s salary has been increased by roughly 10 percent, because teachers now are paid much less than other people with a similar education as physicians and those who work in public administration,” – said the press Secretary of teachers ‘ unions SVIZ sandy Modran.
The government stated that the requirements for wages amount to almost 1 billion euros (1.24 billion dollars), adding that they are mostly unacceptable, as not justified by productivity growth and could threaten the planned budget.
It is worth noting that last month, about 30 thousand public sector workers staged a one-day strike this Monday went on strike, the police, and on Tuesday 2 hours not worked nurses are also demanding wage increases.
