Teachers in primary school get about 900-1000 BAM, teachers in secondary school get about 1200-1300 BAM so I assume that data is quite accurate. Generally speaking, teachers are underpaid comparing to other professions requiring degree.
Bojan on Apr 07, 2020:
Average monthly salary in Banja Luka is 600 BAM, but really it depends. people that work in supermarkets as cashiers and food processing factories as blue collar workers get 550 BAM, not 820, 820 is probably what teachers get. So this annoys me, cause it's incorrect and I'm questioning all the other data from Numbeo.
