I am not qualified to talk about Pay for Teachers, but pay is but one aspect of the strike action, for there are others.

No matter how much one is paid they need all the resouces available to do the job completely and this is not occurring currently.

Early signs of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can be detected in infants, yet many children with autism do not receive a diagnosis until the ages of two or three. While not every autistic baby is able to be diagnosed as an infant, there are many benefits to receiving a diagnosis before reaching preschool age. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) an autism diagnosis can be appropriately given at the age of 18 months or even sooner for some babies. Doctors will typically do a screening for autism spectrum disorders at the 9 month, 18 month, 2-year, and 3-year wellness checkups.

It is never too late to be diagnosed and begin identifying resources to help make life with autism easier. The earlier a child is diagnosed (especially in his/her formative years of development) the sooner the child can begin to benefit from selected

For one reason or another the human species has taken control of the worlds resources for its own ends and if taken to its extremes could eventually lead to the total extinction of all living matter, humans , animals, vegetation, etc.
Any use of a resource will have some effect on other resources, some good, some bad, some seen, in effect, immediately, some only after many years, possibly many generation hence.
Resources are important to all, not only humans.
