In the context of an historic Equal Remuneration Case, this paper argues that the low pay endemic to the social and community services sector in Australia is primarily the result of the sector's volunteer past and highly feminised character, and represents a serious undervaluing of care. In the likely event that Fair Work Australia grants a substantial award increase, state and federal governments must subsidise additional costs for employers in this vital sector. Broader questions about welfare provision are also raised.
