No one works for free!! The teachers wouldn't continue to work for free days, weeks, months, or years. It is the radical teachers union saying the state government owes the union 5 billion pesos in back pay, benefits, you and pension. The federal government has paid 1 billion to help the state. The state needs to be accountable. The railroad tracks are owned by the federal government. The federal government should remove the radical teachers from the tracks. Who is going to pay the 1 billion per day the railroads are losing? The federal government will need to.
This is hard to call. The government seems to be going through due process to resolve the situation without aggressive action. The article does state that the teachers are protesting because they aren’t getting paid. That seems to be the root cause that created this situation in the first place. But the article doesn’t say anything about what’s being done to address and resolve the pay issue.
Teachers also need to get paid for their work so they can support themselves and their families. There might be other issues involved, but they’re not covered in the article.
