Venezuelan teachers are considering quitting after the government paid them a fraction of their summer holiday bonuses.
Pay pushes Venezuelan teachers to protest, consider quitting
Public school teachers across Venezuela had planned to use their annual vacation bonus to buy uniforms for their children, waterproof leaky roofs, get new prescription glasses or fix the pair barely held together by adhesive tape.
Some expected to get $100, while others calculated a little more or less depending on their years of service and advanced degrees, though only a small number thought they would get around $200.
The government, however, paid them only a tiny fraction of that.
So, a few days into their long break, teachers have been marching by the thousands around the country, threatening to strike when school resumes or possibly even to abandon their profession.
