It's easy to say,
“Each pay period is actually different. When you’ve got 92,000 teachers to be paid, 10,000 different combinations of pay across 13 award, it is a very, very complex system.”

They should just sack them, reinstate the system that worked and ask the Australian company for compensation for all of the harm done, including the stress for the staff which has now gone on for several months! Just not good enough. What the heck is Parata doing about it - just hiding behind her associate?
