Not sure if this the the right link, but it's essentially about teachers at a private Brisbane school being unsatisfied with an above CPI wage increase, because they want more.

Perhaps there should be lessons in schools that there is a 'real world' beyond the walls from within where they teach and, many people in that real world are wondering if they are going to have a job, let alone a pay rise. There's just no pleasing some people, no matter what shape our nation is in.

Dear Rehctub,

You're talking about a private school here.
"If you want the best - pay the best," is the
adage that applies.

And, as someone called Brad commented - it seems
amazing that teachers need to strike at a private
school over a quarter of a percent increase in
their salaries.

Unbelievable!

Unbelievable! Too right Foxy, this is the lowest pay rise in twenty years, which means they did none of the heavy lifting during the GFC. Truly unbelievable I would suggest.
