    Default CHILDCARE - petition, info, and latest exciting news.

    Hi,

    Here is a NATIONAL petition related directly to childcare conditions and worker wages. IT's gathered over 7000 signatures thus far, and now the PM has come onboard. However, it STILL needs critical numbers - so please sign:

    Here is some additional information (EXCITING NEWS) : http://www.myunitedvoice.org/cc_bignews

    Also, there's been A LOT of talk in the media, both main****** and online.
    Here are some excellent reads if you get a chance:

    Default Urgent - please vote!

    Hi all,

    We have 3 days to collect 7000 votes to ask our PM, Julia Gillard, to please answer this question:

    “When will you deliver the necessary funding boost to pay early childhood educators a professional wage, so we can fix the child care crisis?”


    Please take a couple of minutes to vote at the OURSAY website 7 times (WE can all vote 7 times) to ask PM Gillard to answer this question urgently. WE only have 3 days to make it happen! Please pass on to your friends and family, and see if you can get them to help also.

    Thanks,
    Lily

    I won't sign that.. I do agree they need higher wages but if this is granted childcare centres will use it as an excuse to raise their fees whether they have the extra funding to support it or not. So until they cap childcare fees to stop childcare centres doing this I can't sign

    This too. As a carer and a mum I can't put two children in daycare and earn enough in childcare to pay daycare and it be worthwhile. So if they pay me more, but significantly Increase the fees, there's still no point me working!
