A woman has disclosed the disparity in the salary she used to receive as an English teacher in Ghana and now that she is teaching in Vietnam.
The Ghanaian woman identified as Mercy Agyei Ankomah said that while teaching in Ghana, she earned Ghc1,500 (N87k) but now takes over $1,300 (N540k) in Vietnam.
She made the disclosure during a chat with SVTV Africa’s Nyaami, adding that she doesn’t intend to return because “Ghana is expensive now”.
Ankomah, however, expressed concern about delays in payment, while adding that at the height of the prevailing pandemic, the profession was affected.
“Before the pandemic, Black teachers took $600. But during the pandemic, the white teachers left. So now I take $1,300. Others also receive $1,200 to $3,000,” she said.
She used to teach at Juaben Senior High, Ghana and lived a comfortable life, but she relocated after a travel agent urged her.
