Student calls for increase of pay in the Sector

Early-years student Chloe Knox (22) will graduate in two weeks, but it is not the time of joy she imagined.

The sector is experiencing major uncertainty, which has not gone unnoticed by the next generation of workers. Many of Ms Knox’s peers are considering emigrating or leaving the industry.

She says there is a crisis in pay, conditions and in recognition for those working in creches across the country.

She had to take on a second job while completing her degree to cover the rising cost of living in Dublin.
