Yet another group of teachers in the global South have remained unpaid for months. In this case the teachers are in one of the poorest areas in Malawi, Nsanje District and they have not been paid for nine months according to reports.

Parents and women's rights organisations in the area are planning demonstrations to demand that the government 'hear the cry of the teachers' because 'enough is enough.'

As we have reported earlier, there is no reason why Malawi should be a poor country. It is the fifth largest producer of tobacco in the world. But like many other countries its rich agricultural resources are exploited by big corporations  to increase their profits.

Meanwhile teachers typically earn a paltry $50 a month and even this is not paid on time.
