    Because it caps off at $100k. My salary when I had my kids was well above that and my private paid maternity leave around 5 months full pay.

    Oh I didn't mean those big ones! Big but smaller than those.

    Good point though. Will be interesting to see what private enterprise does, and if they will be directed by the Govt to change/reduce their existing schemes....

    Waste of time.

    I fail to see what desperate need this is addressing that wasn't already being addressed by private enterprise.
    I am worse off as I am over the threshold as I'm over $100k but my work doesn't provide ppl for men or women. Oh but I still get to pay the extra tax

    Edit: the company I work for is well known and large....

    I agree it would be very interesting to know how many companies don't have a ppl scheme of some kind.
    Seriously?? That's terrible.

    I don't understand how you would be worse off? The bulk of employers don't actually have any paid schemes. I'm considered lucky to get six weeks full pay on top of the 18 weeks PPL. I don't think you can accurately gauge what it's like for those who don't earn 100k. If you own over the threshold then of course you wouldn't see a need say compared to someone like me who earns under 60k

    But the bulk of companies don't do that!

    If the new PPL went through you would be better off then as you would get 50k as opposed to nothing from your employer
