Why Early Childhood Educators Are Underpaid

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

While last week's Ontario budget didn't mention the $2 per hour provincial wage grant that tops up the pay of more than 39,000 ECE workers in the province, advocates have learned the grant will be continued. Rachel Lafferty, executive coordinator of the Association of Early Childhood Educators Ontario, joins The Agenda to discuss the role of ECEs in the province and why a top-up grant is needed.
