Pay Equity Work Assessment

Introduction to the NZEI Te Riu Roa Pay Equity Claim

Early Childhood teachers and educators are some of the most important people in children's lives. We nurture children’s learning at the most crucial time in their education. Yet we’re some of the lowest paid people in New Zealand.

Today we’re putting an end to being under-valued and underpaid, just because our work has historically been done by women. We’re starting a new movement, making a historic claim for pay equity for everyone working in ECE.

Your work
