    Interesting.
    Which state are you currently in? What's the top pay scale for a classroom teacher?

    Similar to me in that the pay is awful but I love my job. Emotional reward instead of financial reward.
    I work as a carer in aged care, 5 days a fortnight and earn $23k a year- that's with working a Sunday a fortnight and public holidays, otherwise it would be even less. I've been doing it for 11 years.

    The irony is you earn more stacking shelves yet you need a qualification to work in our field. And have a hell of a lot of responsibility like giving medications and dressing wounds.

    I've seen many good staff come and go on to something else (especially males) due to the crappy pay and lack of progression. You couldn't be a breadwinner in our profession. Most are young people studying or part time mums like me.
