United Voice is running a national campaign to increase the wages of child care workers also known as early childhood education and care (ECEC). They have called on the federal government to give childcare centres $1.4 billion in extra funding to increase staff wages without increasing fees for parents. They want the average wage to increase from $18.58 an hour to $26.
Famous quotes containing the words steps and/or big:
“Is it the lumberman, then, who is the friend and lover of the pine, stands nearest to it, and understands its nature best? Is it the tanner who has barked it, or he who has boxed it for turpentine, whom posterity will fable to have been changed into a pine at last? No! no! it is the poet.... All the pines shudder and heave a sigh when that man steps on the forest floor.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“If our caricaturists do not hate their enemies, it is not because they are too big to hate them, but because their enemies are not big enough to hate.”
—Gilbert Keith Chesterton (18741936)
