Austria -Treatment of teachers leads to protest -December 18, 2013

Some 40,000 civil servants have taken part in a demonstration on the Ballhausplatz in Vienna as part of a protest against the way pay negotiations are going and also over anger at changes in the regulations for teachers. As well as anger over the wage conditions and treatment of teachers there was anger over the plan to scrap the country’s science ministry. The new government has decided to cut public spending by integrating the ministry of science and research into the economics ministry.
