Żminijietna – Voice of the Left stressed that “although Government's provision for universal childcare services was a big step forward, conditions of employment need to improve and further regulation is needed".
“Żminijietna is highly concerned with the inferior conditions of employment that the workers in this sector find themselves in. Childcarers are experiencing low wages and precariousness in both the public and the private sector, and this is leading to a high turnover of workers"
"Government should ensure that wages in both the public and private sectors increase, so as to reflect the high level of responsibility that childcarers have in the education of children in crucial years of their personal development".
"Unionisation of childcarers should also be ensured without delay. Żminijietna supports MUT in its struggle to organize this sector and to improve the conditions of work. Workers should be allowed to choose full-time employment".
