Romania -Teachers demand better wages -November 06, 2013

Over 10,000 teachers joined a protest march against the underfunded educational system on 6 November. The teachers demand higher wages, fair employment policies and more investment in education. In front of the Parliament, the teachers presented a petition calling on the government to allocate at least 6% of GDP for education. Teachers unions also announced that if the government fails to react to the petition, a general strike will be the likely result.
