Education and science workers mobilised on 12 May in order to demand decent wages and reform of the education financing model. Latvian teachers’ salaries fall far behind the EU average, have not kept up with inflation and do not reflect an average of 18 hours that teachers work more than they are paid for contractually. At the moment that the Education and Science ministry is redesigning the remuneration system, teachers are demanding fair wages.
