Coalition to axe pay rise for 30,000 childcare workers
The Labor approved initiative that aimed to boost the wages of 30,000 childcare workers is on the chopping block.
The $300 million Early Years Quality Fund was to be spent in 1100 childcare centres to increase the wages of certificate III childcare workers by $3 an hour and early-childhood teachers by $6 an hour.
The government wrote to childcare centres who had accepted the funding, advising that the initiative is under review.
The government has expressed that the funding is not fair to all childcare centres as it only assists a minority of the long day care services and educators.
Organisations that have not fulfilled the conditions of Labor’s deal have already had their funding offers revoked.
