I can't help but think that some changes will go through but not as proposed. Even if they don't extend the time frame but increase the $ or the opposite, increase the time frame but not the $. Better yet, meet in the middle! Either way I would be happy with any sort of change for the better.
Today's article : "On the PPL, which is strongly opposed by business for being overly generous and unaffordable, Mr Abbott said the legislation would be presented to Parliament soon. He said the scheme, which would give mothers up to $50,000 to stay at home for six months, was good economic policy as well as good for families.
He suggested the Government might acquiesce to changes to the policy as it went through the Senate."
Is it my imagination but is the amount of money getting smaller and smaller?
And so it should, 50k is exorbitant for 6 months
Not for me it wouldn't be.
