Already many support workers in the early childhood and primary schools have settled their pay equity claim. Three hundred and twenty-nine women support workers will get a pay rise of up to 30 percent after the Educational Institute, and the Ministry of Education signed the Terms of Settlement on Tuesday. Support worker Kathleen Power told Morning Report producer Jeremy Wilkinson the pay increase would make both teachers and students feel valued.
