“Most schools in Slovenia were closed on Wednesday as some 40,000 teachers held a one-day strike, the latest in a week of protests by public sector workers demanding more pay amid stronger economic growth.

Police officers began a strike on Monday and nurses staged a two-hour walkout on Tuesday. Last month about 30,000 public sector employees took to the streets calling for higher wages.

About 20,000 teachers from all over the country flooded the snow-covered center of Ljubljana on Wednesday, blowing whistles and holding banners, many of which mocked Public Administration Minister Boris Koprivnikar.” (Reuters)
