The NGO I work in has a transparent salary grid, but all the workers are still heavily underpaid compared to what I’m seeing in other job advertisements. I know the NGO sector is far from being wealthy (we all know it!) but it doesn’t justify this extremely low pay for a job which often comes with significant requirements in terms of experience, responsability, extra hours, etc.

The “you choose to work for an NGO = prepare to be poor your whole life” mentality needs to change!
