    My brother left at the end of year 11 and struggles on his wage. I think that for some people it is impossible for them to stay to the end of year 12, a waste of time for them, their peers and a drain on teachers time. Why only extend the pay increase to the ones that finish year 12. Make it incentive based - save the increase as a bonus until the end of the semester - incorporate their attendance on the job and results achieved at Tafe, award high achievers not just the kids that stuck it out at school.
