Unpaid teachers tell of hardship

Many living on handouts as debt piles up

DOZENS of Eastern Cape teachers, who have gone months without their salaries, are desperate for their money as they fear losing their homes, cars and other belongings as their financial woes pile up.

About 100 newly appointed teachers from across the province have come forward, saying they had not seen a cent in salaries since they were appointed in January.

The teachers say they have been forced to live on handouts and accumulating loans as they deal with “excuse after excuse” from the department.

    DCG SA Has recently learnt that there are TEACHERS that have not received their salaries for a few months. We would like to offer any Teachers who would like to take advantage of our service a FREE financial assessment and Credit check so we can see exactly what their situation is. DCG SA will be able to assist with negotiating with the creditors so that none of the Teachers end up having any assets repossessed due to non payment of accounts. This includes and is not limited to furniture, home or vehicles. They can call us on 0861001047 or e-mail help@dcgsa.co.za Please use the Ref: ECT to make sure our office know that we have given this assessment to you for FREE.
