TEACHERS EXPAND STRIKE ACTION IN PAY FIGHT
TASSIE is said to be in an economic boom ... give a bit back, Will!
TEACHERS are paid the lowest wages in the country in Tasmania for such a full-on and hard job. They deserve a fair wage and the Government needs to respect education more in regard to funding.
I WAS at the rally in Launceston and spoke to many teachers. Not one was complaining about their wages, although a few mentioned that they’d be better off taking jobs elsewhere, but they all said the actual workload and unpaid time they spend was the real issue because it impacted negatively on their students. I support these teachers because they’re fighting for better outcomes for the kids. Anyone who tries to spin it any other way is either disingenuous or a dunce.
WHY are people banging on about it only being 2 per cent, when it is actually 6 per cent over three years, is it not. It’s a fair enough increase as it stands, I reckon.
