The teachers’ union of the state of Rio Grande do Sul  decided on Friday (Nov.24) to continue a strike that has lasted for 80 days. Teachers want salary increase, but the state is in a critical financial situation and already devotes 70 percent of its budget to pay civil service salaries. The state’s financial situation was severely hampered during the  the Workers’ Party Tarso Genro administration (2011-2015).
