    Another block, so DD is an option, although of course it won't happen. Abbott is stupid, but not that stupid.

    Does anyone know if the new PPL comes in (26 weeks at actual wage and scrapping,employer paid leave) when would it apply from? Babies born after 1 January 2015? Or babies born on or after the date the legislation passes?

    The date decided in the legislation. It has been suggested as 1 July 2015 but I wouldn't be surprised if it got pushed back a year.

    You mean July 2016?

    I suppose if they want to make employers remove their maternity leave, they need time for those employers to change their EBs etc

    @Allie Pallie the coalition is still working on implementation from 01 July 2015.
    But yes it wouldn't be surprising if it doesn't happen!

    It's not about disadvantaging those that have been financially successful, it's about offering support to the needy.
    It actually reflects what I believe to be the REAL sense of entitlement issue. 'Someone else is getting it so I should too' regardless of what actual need they have.

    Your friend needs to be reported to the fraud team. She's taking funding from those that actually NEED it in order to survive.

    Just looking way into the future as DD1 is only 6 but say she is 21 and struggling financially im meant to support her but her dad gets off scot free cause he doesnt have to pay child support after she is 18??
    In some cases CS needs to be paid until 21yrs old. It has benefits and downfalls. There is a review into CS happening at the moment and they're calling for opinions. No assurances that they will listen, but now is the time to have your say

    Thats it! To be able to afford to work, you need to start off on a mid to high income! Starting from the bottom means that you end up disadvantaging your kids, your health, and your future. It's a rock and a hard place. We seriously need to make that single parent commune where children are raised in a village...

    I have given up- just going to keep on plodding along and putting my head in the sand. No one has any real details and even if we did, they change their minds so quick it doesn't really matter!

    Why don't we just go the whole hog an introduce a death tax as well.

    Worst....Government....ever.
    I actually agree that HEC's SHOULD be paid out of the estate. However I feel that in the unfortunate case that this occurs, it should be principal amount only. Even as HEC's it is a loan, preferably a no-interest loan, but a loan non-the-less. A mortgage, ccard etc would come out of the estate, I fail to see why HEC's should be exempt.

    It seems like a very darwinian approach for a anti-science government lol. It does appear to be a survival of the fitest aproach. If you can't sustain yourself than you don't deserve to be a part of the community- regardless of situation or reason.

    The whole budget is ridiculously frightening to me, especially all the medical funding changes. Yes there is a lot of waste in the public service, but massive cuts to jobs without assessing the running is short sighted and will cost more in the long run.

    Why not invest in assessors and cut the actual FAT instead of just making amputations to departments and sectors?
