National day of action on early childhood educator wages

Tuesday 27th March is Keep Your Children at Home Day, an initiative organised by the United Voice Union as part of their Big Steps campaign. It aims to highlight the low wages of early childhood educators, who at $21 an hour are paid only around half the average national wage. Alex Whisson caught up this morning with the assistant secretary of United Voice’s WA branch, Karma Lord, and began by asking what life is like on such a low wage for the people doing surely what is one of the most important jobs in the country.
