Increase the teacher salary and get rid of the pay gap!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

We are level 3 sociology students from Hamilton. As part of our internal we are wanting to see an increase in the teachers salary but to also see a change for our hard working teachers in New Zealand. Currently teachers salary range is $47,000 as a starting pay with a maximum of $78,000 with similar university qualifications to other professions. When the National government was in power, they showed intent to increase teacher salary and did by small amounts each year but were restricted due to other issues. The Labour party says they will put money into education but are unclear if they intend to increase teachers salary. This petition is to show that we care and we want to see change. We want to see that people care about this issue and want to support a change!
