What does the issue of pay mean for you as a teacher, and the tamariki you teach?
Immigration NZ requires the median wage for immigrant workers to be eligible for a visa, but as a newly qualified teacher, my current pay is below the median wage.
What will it take to fix pay for kindergarten teachers?
All the teachers including newly qualified get paid above the median wage, so they can continue working in NZ.
When we fix pay for kindergarten teachers, what impact will that change have on you as a teacher, and the tamariki you teach?
I can have a future as a teacher in NZ. It would be devastating if I have to leave the country after I made a huge investment to be a qualified teacher in NZ.
