The new budget, adopted on October 22, includes wage cuts of 10% across the board in the public sector. A spokesperson of the unions said teachers were well aware of the difficult economic situation, but wanted the burden of the crisis more equally distributed. While the average salary in the public sector is 70,000 dinars (585 euro) a month, in education the average salary is 42,000 dinars (342 euro).
