Virtual Cost of Living is Not Enough
TECCA staff are paid considerably lower than their brick and mortar counterparts. Working from home DOES NOT rectify an average of a $10,000-$20,000 pay cut. Our caseloads and administrative tasks are significantly higher than our counterparts, and our curriculum and platform is outdated. TECCA staff deserve to be valued for their dedication.
TECCA staff have not received any significant cost of living increase since the pay scales were first introduced in 2018. A "restructuring" of the pay scales resulted in the majority of staff receiving cost of living increases ranging from $5-$15 in 2020.
TECCA still has no clear plan in their budget to raise wages to be more equitable with brick and mortar schools.
Working virtually, does not mean we are virtually expendable.
Demand that TECCA update their pay scales to reflect reasonable cost of living increases.
