Fair Pay Agreements yes but Government will have to pay up to get equity. 1 year 3 months ago #22

Government intends to introduce legislation to allow employers and workers to create Fair Pay Agreements that set minimum employment terms and conditions for all workers in the industry or occupation covered by the agreement.
If “Fair Pay Agreements" will help lift wages and conditions and ensure good employers are not disadvantaged by paying reasonable, industry-standard wages good but where is the money coming from? Government will have to fund the community and big companies a lot more to move pay up to get us paid on a real teachers wage. It will be a big move from the beginning teachers pay we often get now. At present big companies are putting their money into expansion not wages. Pay ECE. teachers directly from Government funds will solve the difficulties of being total disadvantaged by 10s of thousands of dollars.

A very far and just idea I would say as many of us have been discussing this point for quite sometimes now.
