I realised that in over 10 years as a nanny not one employer had paid me over the legal minimum wage let alone close to the market salary in Zurich or in Basel!
SNA gave me the information and the correct way of wording so I was able to ask for a raise.
I also learned a lot about industry standards, for example banking hours.
