Childcare workers deserve better pay

Tracey Bell writes on ABC News:

We’re some of the lowest-paid professionals in Australia: some of my colleagues are paid as little as $22 an hour (almost half the national average wage).

The government has little to no regard of early childhood education and early childhood educators.

High-quality education in the early years is critical to child development, but our work is being undervalued.

We deserve a better deal and to be paid fairly for the important work we do.
