You don't think a national childcare shortage that keeps people out of paid work and results in women remaining the minority of the workforce is anything for a government to be concerned about?

Concern, yes, but blame?

Though I do understand your logic, sub child care wages=more child care spots=more people in the workforce=more tax. Would work as long as they gained more tax than they paid in wage subsidies. Not sure it would though and I am not interested in another tax increase

Me neither. I'm more concerned about more and more women not working because they can't. That's a wider societal issue than just revenue from income tax.

I'm not really sure why you're arguing against me? Do you think the system is fine? Or would you prefer me to be huffy with those pesky SAHMs who steal my spot And I def don't want fees to increase either. The centre I am hoping to get into charges $125 per day.

No sorry I'm not arguing with you, was just having a conversation about it I think the wages need an overhaul because I feel that's the reason there is a child care shortage. I'm just saying I don't think it would be fair to increase tax to pay for child care wages to increase, the money has to come from somewhere though!

But to increase centre fees would be catastrophic as well- who can afford $125 per day? And even with the rebate, that's what- $67 or so per day? It's already at a rate where it's eating up too much of people's pay cheques.
I feel like we have been placed in the position where a few years ago, the fed government were urging us to increase the population, and now we have so many families who rely on CC and they can't get what they need. If I do end up stopping work, we'll be in such huge debt. Sure half my pay already goes to CC fees (or went :rolleyes) but the other half does our groceries, rent and utilities. Without that my DP would have to shoulder the burden of everything.. and we will really be trying hard to make ends meet.
What's another tax anyway? We already pay so many, a little more wouldn't hurt
