The teachers’ plight was raised by Madang MP Bryan Kramer in parliament last week.
The teaching sector is one of the largest in the country.
In 2016 the government promised the 57,000 teachers in the country a 3 percent pay increment in 2017, 2018 and 2019.
2 years have passed and the issue remains stagnant.
Kramer, directing his question to Education Minister Nick Kuman and Minister for Treasury, Charles Abel, demanded definite answers if these increments were budgeted for and confirm when the increments will be paid.
