It is outrageous that that early childhood educators earn a third less than those teaching and caring for children just a few years older. A responsible government that values the future of our children would already have fixed this injustice. Call on the federal government to fund pay that’s equal to the essential work early childhood educators do. We will march to Treasury Gardens for a BBQ lunch and where there wil be children's activities and entertainment. 11am. City Square, 67 Swanston St, City. Hosted by Big Steps Campaign and United Voice.
