A Ghanaian headmistress has recently opened up about her salary after working for 28 years as a teacher.
She called in during Luv FM's Luv In The Morning show hosted by David Akuetteh and recounted that after deductions, her take-home salary is Ghc950, which makes life very difficult, Joy Online reported.
The mother of three also shared that she has had to rely on loans to cater to her and her family's basic needs.
According to the report, the headmistress has not been promoted since 2001, and with her small salary, she is sometimes left with no choice but to use a part of it to cover school costs such as making photocopies.

YEA job fair: Young Ghanaian Graduate says he will not take Anything less than Ghc2000 as Salary
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a young Ghanaian man recently granted an interview with Citi Newsroom and revealed that although he has been jobless for a year now, taking anything less than Ghc2000 as salary is out of the question.
The bold young man, whose name was not disclosed, made this statement at the just ended Youth Employment Agency (YEA) job fair held at the Accra international conference centre from Thursday, September 9, 2021, to Friday, September 10, 2021.
According to the man, he will reject a monthly salary lower than Ghc2000 because he has an Information Technology (IT) background, and with his skills and certifications, he expects better pay.
Another reason he brought up is that he lives in Accra, and the cost of living is very high; hence to be paid below Ghc2000 would be of no help.
