Unpaid Placements - National Day of Actions
The fight for paid placements for all community service students is not over.
The situation is causing dropout rates to increase, with over 1 in 5 studying a Community Service degree withdrawing from study due to financial stress.
On Tuesday 28 November
there will be a National Day of Action
. On this day there will be a rally at NSW Parliament and lots of online action to join.
We are demanding:
- Students are paid at the minimum industry rate
- Organisations to be funded to pay students at the minimum industry rate
- Employment relationships between organisations and students
Join the action by sharing this post . And sharing a selfie with this sign and the hashtag #endunpaidplacements.
No one should have to choose between feeding their families or not to complete their studies.
We need your voice to help advocate for a diverse and well-trained workforce.
