Personally, I'm stoked at what the government do for me - I get CCB and CCR which means I end up only paying about $23 per day for DS's care at his long day care centre. I also get FTB payments due to being a single parent earning under the threshold amount. I am SO grateful for this.
I do feel the government are very conscious of the inequality in pay for female dominated industries and that this is on their agenda. Others may disagree but I feel it is.
Id like to see workplaces take more responsibility for childcare, especially corporate australia, by providing on site childcare in their buildings.
