wages and benefits in the sector

The Early Childhood field is in crisis in BC - many Early Childhood Educators are leaving the field and it is difficult to recruit new people. Research shows and your voices tell us that this is occurring because of wages/benefits that are too low to make a living wage. Based on the Sector Survey carried out in 2016, the Early Childhood Educators of BC is revising recommendations for fair compensation.
