An MoE leap-year penalty

Opinion Piece

Re: Novopay and the Ministry of Education.

Why is it that support staff in the education system lose wages because it is a “leap year”? Quote: “2020 is a leap year, so there is one extra day in the year which will slightly reduce your fortnightly pay.”For myself I lose $30 a fortnight which is $669 next year. To me that is not a slight reduction!For 2020, we will work exactly the same hours doing the same type of work, if not more, for less pay. Is that fair? Is that a slight reduction!? Pfff . . .Annoyed
