Teacher salary: the 35% utopia and the picture of discord

The five teaching unions of the Nation met with the Minister of Education, Nicolás Trotta, and agreed on the wage claim: floor is 29%. The number jumps from the projection of the Minister of Economy, Martín Guzmán, on the inflation of the year despite the jump to 4% in January.
