Teachers in part of Siberia, Russia were paid in vodka in September 1998, as the authorities had no money to meet their wages bill. More than 8,000 teachers were given 15 bottles each, as they reportedly had not been paid their salaries since February or March. Reportedly, authorities had earlier offered to pay in vegetables, toilet paper and funeral accessories.
