I can see this from both sides, as I see how when a person has been out of the workforce for a long time it would feel incredibly overwhelming to venture back. I was a SAHM for over 2 years when my current job came up and I put every road block I could come up with in the way to make it impossible for me to take the job. Honestly it just seemed way too hard.
But despite earning a very high wage DH has never been comfortable being the sole bread winner so I reluctantly went back. And it wasn't that bad.
I don't agree with much about this budget, and I think there are better ways of achieving what they say they are trying to achieve (when in fact I think they are just window dressing mean things in the guise of a social conscience) but I do think more people (frankly women) who have been out of the workforce for a long time need to either return to work or stop receiving some payments.
