Women take years out the workforce. No super contributions in that time. Retirement comes. Females have hundreds of thousands less in super than male counterparts purely because of biology/societal norms.
Who will support them? Not the govt! Not our generation anyway. Ah yes the men folk and our children!
It's a huge issue.
It's not like these mums are just sitting around at home they are raising the next generation of tax payers.
I have no issue with the current plan other than I think it should be for the full six months and not 18 weeks, and it should include super.
