New reduction in teachers salaries in northern Syria


Teachers in the liberated areas of northern Aleppo, particularly in the city of Azaz, woke up today to bad news after the announcement of a reduction in subsidies/salaries ranging from 200 to 280 TL.

 Teachers had been complaining about salaries for several months, which vary between 800 and 1100 TL, or $43 and 58$ per month.

A large part of the teachers had been on strike for several weeks, demanding an increase in subsidies/salaries by the Turkish administration, which is responsible for paying teachers in northern Syria.

This decrease comes at the onset of the freezing winter and bad weather that will hit the poorest in the region.  A decision that will certainly increase the anger of the inhabitants who are living through one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world.
