TEHRAN, May 29 - Tens of thousands of New Zealand teachers walked off the job on Wednesday in protest as they called for higher pay and shorter hours in the country's largest ever education strike.

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - Almost 50,000 secondary and primary school teachers joined the strike, according to their unions, closing schools around the nation.

The strike came a day before Jacinda Ardern's government was set to release its first 'Wellbeing' budget, which had been touted globally as a new approach to fiscal decision-making guided by a broader range of indicators to improve New Zealanders' living standards.

Unions working on behalf of teachers have been negotiating with the government for months for pay rises and measures to reduce workloads, but so far have ended in deadlock.
