I can't see mention of the 15hrs anywhere? Is it in this article? (Sorry might just be blind!)..
15 hours is a ridiculous number really. I know that equates to 2 full time days, but a lot of the people I know who work part time only work 10-12 hours as they need to usually do school pick up as well, so only 6ish hours each day. I see so many pt jobs advertised for that amount of hours as well.
How are employers meant to be able to afford to put all parent part-timers onto a minimum of 15 hours a week?
How are currently employed part-timers meant to force their employers to give them more hours so that they can access childcare rebates?
How are all of the job seeking patents out there meant to all apply for, and get, the limited number of 15hr+ pt jobs that are out there?
It just makes no sense.... :/
