I think it's a step in the right direction. Should the government pay a little bit? Yeah why not. Should they pay for all of someone's wage? No, that would send the government broke.
People on $60,000+ can have more expenses depending on where they live. They might not get paid parental leave through their work. And they may not have enough disposable income to save enough money to take leave all on their own. So the paid dad and partner leave could help.
Would my hubby use it? Probably not. He has generous leave through his employment and the government leave would not cover the mortgage and bills. I used the government ppl when I had bub. No way in heck it would cover the bills. So I took half paid leave from work (to extend my time off) and the ppl topped this up. It didnt quite take it to the same level but it helped and I was appreciative.
