Teachers deserve better salaries

THE EDITOR, Sir:

My God, man, the Government needs to have a conscience and be fair!

The teachers are not even asking for what they deserve, yet the Government finds it so hard to give them. They, who are the nation's builders, mothers, facilitators, counsellors, heroes, fathers, nurses - you name it - they deserve better.

The protracted public-sector wage negotiations are shameful. The teachers will not accept this disgraceful and disrespectful salary plan.

Have a heart, Mr Minister, you were taught by teachers, and your children and grandchildren were taught by teachers. Give the teachers a chance to live, take care of themselves, and raise their families. Even that they deserve.
