“Working even though I don’t get paid. I need my salary, creditors harass me. My salary belongs to my family, we demand immediate payment. I am committed to the country’s education, I have not stopped my work, I demand that my rights acquired with effort and honest work not be violated. ”
The teachers pointed out that they got ahead with their own resources by having to teach from their homes.
They stated that they financed the Internet connection and that the Government must know that they need to cancel the companies that provide this service.
