I also support a family already so the extra I earn is needed.... I am happy not to receive the extra but to turn around and have someone pull the.... Well u will get more than me so be happy what u get.... Does not sit well with me.
I didn't throw it in your face I was merely pointing out that you would not be worse off than now! I don't care how much you earn to be honest the whole 25 to 50 k divide is one of my sticking points with the PPL it should be a flat rate as it is now with the minimum wage. Everyone works hard for their pay I'm not saying you don't in the slightest.
I don't understand the flat rate mentality. Do we all get a flat rate for annual leave? Parental leave is about maintaining the financial status quo so people can continue to meet their usual financial obligations but be able to take time off to have a baby (for set a period of time of course).
Anyway I don't know why I bother... People on this forum don't generally seem to grasp that concept.
Parental leave in other OECD countries is based on your usual wage. Do you really think they're all getting it wrong or all think that some people are more deserving of money than others? Nope.
Lili. No I get nothing from my employer. I can only rely on my husbands income
1) not take extended leave
2) use contraception until such a time as they are financially stable and have enough $$ in the bank to top up a flat rate minimum wage ppl.
