I started teaching 21 years ago, the pay was terrible. It looks like its going to go that way again. The EIS want jobs and employment opportunities, vote for the revised package. Yeah right. I started with a dept of £100 because I bought a wetsuit before I came here. The poor devils who start now are up to their eyeballs in debt, if the pay and conditions don't stay at the same level as McCrone put us, a job teaching it is not worth it. The EIS wants desperate people, desperate people join unions. There is no point doing a job if you are not paid a decent rate. I feel sorry for the one' struggling for a job, but, believe me, you don't want a job like the one I had when I started.
