Teachers must earn more than the President and MPs – Ras Mubarak
Former Member of Parliament for the Kumbungu Constituency has said that left to him alone, teachers deserve to be paid more than the President and Members of Parliament.
He said this is because teacher sacrifices far more than all professions, yet, they are the people given the little salary at the end of the day.
Speaking further, he added doctors for that matter health workers as well. Saying they also deserve good salaries.
“Teachers should be paid higher than anybody in this country. I would reiterate that teachers and doctors as far as I am concerned, should receive higher pay than the President and MPs, considering the sacrifices they (Teachers) make.
Go to the communities and you will realize that the teachers abandon teaching to trade on the side. That is how seriously our society is decaying”, he told Raymond Nyamador on the Happy Morning show.
Meanwhile, Ras Mubabrak has shared that the salaries of MPs are meager when compared to other African countries.
