    Was reference to Btmac which I believe she was proposing that income that goes into ppl "account" be at reduced tax as an incentive.

    If you are into economics, the first 2 articles are really good.
    It shows how Australia needs to increase it's revenue by cutting tax concessions (negative gearing, CGT concession, FBT etc)

    The last article shows that PPL is very unlikely to pass.

    Only managed to read the details of proposed PPL by the coalition.

    So anyone earning over 150k a year would still get the PPL but capped at the max amount (whereas currently if you are over $150k you get nothing).

    Given that only 1.8% of women earn over $100k, I really think it should be capped at 100k.

    ALSO, just read this little bit here and what a load of rubbish. So angry (but not surprised)

    Considering the Greens are Abbotts only chance of getting this through and they have been very adamant about the cap being lowered to the 100k mark for the ppl to be more sustainable, I'm not surprised.

    The Greens have not had any discussions with Abbott about PPL which shows how unlikely it is to go through!

    Apparently only 2% of women in the workforce earn over $100k anyway.

    Finally!!

    He should drop it to 80k - especially now that they are talking about a "deficit tax" for anyone earning above 80k.

    As you @kw123 I believe TA's plan is for his PPL to not go through despise his "best" efforts...

    I just checked the ABS data and only 15% of female employees earn over 80k.
