More than 30,000 teachers marched through Argentina’s capital of Buenos Aires, as well as in different parts of the country on Monday, as part of a two-day national strike.

The teachers are calling for greater wage adjustment to compensate for high inflation seen last year and to end to government education cuts.

Maria Laura Torres, guild secretary of SUTEBA said that: “[We protest] because the National Government, the President of the nation Mauricio Macri and the education minister Esteban Bullrich decided not to call the National Teaching committee, not only putting at risk the salary of all teachers in the country, but also not complying with a national law.”

This has been a long standing issue in Argentina that has in recent times hit a crescendo.

Thanks for covering this. Our president can paid $350 millions to allow the football tournament to start, but he will not pay the raise to the teachers.
Like every neo-liberal he prefer private education to dominate our country, but we will fight him.
