Sorry I've only skimmed most of this so apologies of question has been asked before. Does TA's proposed scheme replace what a woman would be paid privately by her employer?
I'd far worse off under this scheme. I don't agree with it as we can't afford it but as I've said before it's completely unnecessary.
A) very few women earn above $100k
B) many that do already have decent maternity leave provisions. I'd actually be interested to know how many women like me would be worse off.
Waste of time.
I fail to see what desperate need this is addressing that wasn't already being addressed by private enterprise.
I think the bigger organisations will "top up" people on higher incomes so they won't be worse off than their previous employer PPL, but it will still cost the company less than before.
And to add my last paragraph was in reference to high income earners. My personal view is women earning less than say $80k should get better PPL from government but over that leave it to private enterprise (subject to knowing in this day and age how many companies don't actually offer PPL.
