Ahh, i think if its a regular tafe course she decided to do, and it was funded by them, and she was getting paid austudy or newstart or whatever, and failed any section due to a non attempt or absence, boom, hafto pay it back.
Not sure about those job skills/search courses tho.

I like how they think getting work is going to be just that easier for all these mothers returning to the work force.

Diamond eyes, I think you are right. I think you actually have to make the effort or you incur a debt.

Not because we feel we should be able to stay home for 18 years!!
Im a single mum of 2, i work & i recieve benifits, if i you were to take those away from me
- i would lose the house i rent for $700 a fortnight
- i wouldnt be able to afford the $130 grocery bill
-no $70 on petrol to get to work
- no $127 every 3 months for gas for hot showers. & stove use
- no $100 every 3 months for electricity
- no $200 every 8 months for water bill
- no school branded uniforms
- no $60 a month on mobile payments - the only phone i have
- no school excursions
And thats just the start of a long list
I already have a job but due to lack of childcare spots & before & after school spots and then the over all cost of childcare i cant work anymore then 2 days a week due to no spots and only 3 days a week due to kindy n schoolcare eating all my earnings
Not to mention childcare only picks up from certain schools so u may get a spot but they wont pick up and drop off to your childs school
And if you have problems grt into the kindy room like i do - if you found a spot at another kindy out of your suburb and still have no before school care & your childs school starts at 8:30 how do we then get your child into kindy then race back what could be a 30 min drive to ur other childs school for a 8:30 start and then take a 30 min drive to b at work at 9 on the dot so you dont get fired?
And then how many jobs would allow for you to leave at 1:30- 2pm on the dot (traffic dependent) so u can drive 30 mins to your childs school that finishes at 2:30....
That leaves me 2 days of work and only able to work 4 and a half hrs each day
Government assistance means my kids are feed clothed and can have a hot shower and not get up st 4:30-5 am just to get to school
It does not mean i get to be paid to stay at home for 8 yrs or 18.
I still have to work regardless because centrelink benifits alone would only cover food & rent and sbsolutely nothing else!!

I am feeling a little more enlightened
So the main issue seems to be parents wages will no longer be subsidized? At all? Or at a lower rate (the new start rate)?
If this is the case then I agree.... A working parent earning low wages should b subsidized more than a single person.... Obviously the living costs of a parent are more!
My issue was with parents who chose not to work while their children are in school. In my opinion this should not b a choice.

Can someone enlighten me - isn't this change just for the people who were previously under the grandfather (is that what it's called - Ana?) system of payments?
Wasn't this cutoff already in place for the majority of people?

The grandfathered system was put into place at the time - meaning that people under the old system were given a longer period to adjust, put plans in place to get ready for the shift to newstart.
As far as I understand, what they've done here, is drop anyone who was previously under the grandfathered payment system from it - that is the change.
Again - I could be wrong. It's obvious that the CL system isn't clear to understand for anybody

The other thing those bumped off SPP onto Newstart will lose is their pension card. This will cost them other discounts such as:
* discount on phone bill
* discount on electricity bill (includes no ambulance subscription fee in Queensland)
* discount on car registration
* concession rates on public transport
* numerous private discounts offered to pensioners (though more of these are being limited to aged pensioners only)
