DK CALLS FOR WAGE HIKE FOR TEACHERS

 

The leftist Democratic Coalition has called for wage hikes for teachers, saying that they earn 38% less than other university graduates.    At a press conference in Budapest, DK deputy head Péter Niedermüller cited data from the Central Statistical Office saying there were 4,534 vacant positions in education.  He noted that local authorities also have a possibility to support education and teachers. Niedermüller pledged to renovate rundown municipality-owned apartments and offer them to young teachers if he is elected mayor of Budapest’s 7th district at the October 13 local elections.
