For the following passage please provide a Headline, and a BBP (that’s right, I’m not going to test you on Padding – I just wanted you to be thinking about what kinds of things count as padding).
Kiev, Ukraine – A school district in western Ukraine, facing a severe financial crisis, has reached an agreement with its teachers to pay their salaries in vodka and other products. Teachers in the Novoselitsky district, who hadn’t been paid since November, agreed to accept back wages in vodka, grain and butter, the ITAR-Tass news agency reported Monday.
The unconventional solution was prompted by a district-wide payment crisis. Novoselitsky’s education department is broke, in part because a local distillery is failing and cannot afford to pay taxes to thelocal administration, the report said. Teachers across Ukraine frequently protest chronic wage delays and shrinking salaries.
