Finnegan Commends Teachers Amid Delayed Salaries

Michael Finnegan

Educators across the country, those whose salaries are covered by government, will be paid on April twenty-ninth, along with all other public officers.  The unusually tardy payday is the result of monies having to be allocated by government amid the economic hardships stemming from the COVID-19 calamity.  Following Monday’s special sitting of the House of Representatives, Mesopotamia Area Rep Michael Finnegan weighed in briefly on the late payment.


Michael Finnegan, Area Representative, Mesopotamia

“Teachers are good, intelligent and sensible people and I can vouch for that and I am very supportive of them.  There are thousands of people out there who will get no pay at all, who will never see a money in months to come.  Thank God, teachers will be able to see their money and see their money in full but a few days late.  Thank God for teachers and thank God they are getting their payday and teachers are sensible people.”
