By Rose de la Cruz

 

Public school teachers whose take home pays have been reduced to almost nothing because of the high penalties they pay to the lending institutions, like Government Service Insurance System and the PAGIBIG, have found a savior in Kabayan partylist Cong. Ron P. Salo.

 

Salo asked both institutions to waive the penalties and charges on teachers’ loans so that their take-home pays would not be severely eroded.
