    As you @kw123 I believe TA's plan is for his PPL to not go through despise his "best" efforts...
    As much as I hope that something passes, I have always believed this myself. That TA's grand ppl scheme was a carrot for the voters to get him elected, and that he knew as well as everyone that any efforts to get this through would fail, as it would never be passed.

    This whole plan is screwy. 6 months full pay will send the country broke. The current ppl is sufficient.

    @VicPark the current plan is certainly not sufficient. It is still unfair and discriminatory.

    At a minimum, super contributions need to be added to current plan.

    However I agree that proposed PPL is far too generous.

    No it won't, in many cases like mine the current scheme means that my taxable income for the year is very low, the proposed scheme it remains the same.

    Current - low income = low tax paid
    Proposes - standard income = normal tax paid.

    I can tell you that the difference is significant and the current scheme is (in my case) costing the government more when you take into consideration loss of tax revenue.

    That's awful. Wonder what the stats are for me, and if that is actual pay or has been FTE'd to take into account part-timers

    I would be interested to know the incomes of the ppl that oppose the scheme. I fall in the higher end of the income bracket and am not eligible for the tax benefits and allowances currently . Under the new scheme I would be able to get income for 6 months to stay home with Bub.

    @kelbel86 would you already get something from your employer? on top of current PPL?

    I think it's mostly people from mid and lower salary range opposing the scheme. And people over their child bearing years.

    I'm in the top bracket that would get the full whack. My employer has no mat leave payments.
