For a long time, he thought he didn’t want to talk about his salary because it feels awkward, but now it’s time to say a few words about it, as it’s a social problem.

In my fourth school year, after graduating from a class, my net salary is currently HUF 178,193, exceeding the trainee level in the so-called teacher career model. More precisely, my salary was supplemented with the professional sector allowance, because my basic salary is roughly HUF 160,000.

he wrote in his post.

Sára Varga said that her salary for the next month will increase to HUF 207,000 due to the new supplement, but her salary will not increase, but her supplement, which can be taken away at any time.

At the end of the snow, I still think twice about whether I should buy fruit from HUF 178,193, and it doesn’t even occur to me to save money. And here come the big questions of existential anxiety about how long I can ever live in the apartment I currently have, and if I could think of starting a family, what could I raise a child from?

He declared.

According to Sára Varga, people who work in the school for the smooth running of everyday life, for a clean and safe environment, and for the upbringing of children work for an unworthy amount of money and will lose weight.

It is a hopeless financial situation for someone to choose children as their profession as a beginner and also for a colleague who has been in the field for 30 years.

He sees the same goes for kindergarten teachers, school psychologists, maintenance workers, technicians, cleaners.

A friend who specializes in geography history also teaches math in an elementary school because there is no specialist teacher. He has at least four university acquaintances and friends with whom he has graduated and is already considering leaving, several of whom no longer work as teachers.

There are many who have not even begun to teach. I have a lot of colleagues who take a second job plus a job because their primary job doesn’t pay for it. And no matter how pathetic the word sounds, even frozen food cannot be taken

He pointed out.

In addition, he believes that commitment will wear off sooner or later, because the education system is bleeding from many other wounds in addition to the material ones.

And if these professions are really important from a social point of view, then you also think it is important to make the problems of your profession hands-free.

Just like other problems. That as many people as possible know that one day there might be a chance for change so that there is no silence

He closed his post.
