This isn't in inconsistent with what I have posted here. I support 18 weeks minimum wage ppl. Anything more and I think the onus is on the family involved to help top up their own leave by planning in advance. Yonks ago when I chose a mortgage I chose one that allowed temporary reduced payments when kids came along.... So I wouldn't need to downsize my house or buy in a cheaper suburb if I wanted to take extended mat leave.
I hope that answers your questions? I am really struggling to figure out what your point is if it's not to stir..
Not stirring. Just highlighting hypocrisy.
We have tax deductions which puts my already low income this financial year to an even lower rate, so the government is paying me and they loose taxation revenue.
Proposed scheme - my rate of pay but government will also get my tax rate.
So the total cost to the government is actually less under new scheme thanks to tax revenue,
Sorry if you've answered this VP (I'm popping in and out of this thread casually) - why is it that you support 18 weeks? It's about 4.5 months so not long before the 6 month breast feeding recommendations..
