(STUFF) — The extremes of the Novopay debacle have been highlighted by the payslip of one Southland school teacher showing an hourly pay rate of more than $11 million and another teacher fearing he will not be paid before the new year.

Waihopai School teacher aide Sharon Watson, who normally gets paid $18.21 an hour, this week received her payslip which says her hourly rate for 2.71 days of annual leave term time is $11,193,300.

“It was quite exciting,” she said.

“I thought, hang on, I don’t event know how to say that [number]. I put my glasses on and said, ‘no way’.”
