Teachers have constantly said inflation has risen to 761% but their salaries have not been reviewed upwards and they are still earning anything between $35 and $70 a month. Teachers have repeatedly called the government to give them a salary equivalent to the salaries they were earning in October 2018 which is equivalent to $520.
