    Default Good news for those who work in the community sector

    http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-02-0...sector/3804682

    Sorry, if somebody has already posted about this on bh. It's from earlier in the month, but I only saw an article about it yesterday.

    Hopefully other female-dominated industries, like cleaning, childcare and nursing will be next.

    Yes! It is about time, though I heard they are phasing in the increases over 8 years. Ouch! Too late for me, I no longer work in the community sector. It is shocking that the award rates are currently lower than that of sectors such as retail or hospitality.

    I know this is an OLD post, though for those working in the community services sector, has your pay increase started? Mine has! I went up by $4 an hour for the first instalment. It's about time this industry was recognised for hard work for little pay
