Teachers who qualified after 2011 demand equal pay

Teachers who qualified after 2011 are demanding equal pay to their older colleagues.

Several hundred primary school teachers protested outside Leinster house this evening to let politicians know their views.

They say they will be paid hundreds of thousands less throughout their careers because of the cuts.

These teachers say their older colleagues support their demands.

"We've been travelling the country to make sure that everyone is aware, because the problem was a lot of people weren't aware of the extent of the cuts.

"People are coming to work, working alongside each other with the same roles and responsibilities yet are not paid the same."
