I think our family has it all wrong. Dh needs to throw in his job, I'll get a job doing a few hours a week. We can get more CL and I can get the PPL. Seems upside down that a woman being home with a working partner should get no support for a baby, but a man being home with a wife that works hardly any hours paying less tax and getting more CL gets 8k.
Sorry but that makes no sense to me Leave the BB, which is already way less than PPL and leave the PPL. That would seem fair?

A line has to be drawn somewhere. If the gov't tried to make everyone happy they'd go broke. And get voted out (which they will anyway).
I just don't get this idea that people who don't work or work minimal hours get paid for having a baby. Sorry I'm not intending to be inflammatory but I honestly don't get it. If we had a major crisis in population I'd get it, but we don't.

ETA they're not getting rid of it they're reducing it and changing the entitlement to it.

I haven't seen anything from woman supporting the Bb here so I will be the exception. I am relying hard on the baby bonus not because me and my partner are lazy and stay home all day and get centrelink which is how I feel it is being portrayed here. This was a suprise baby. I had just lost my job and my partner is only casual. The bb helps people. I don't get why everyone is so against it. Unless they aren't getting it.

My husband works though and pays his taxes.... We are also saving the tax payer by hardly using CC. I'm the one that runs your P&C and runs the canteen. My role matters too? I support a cut to the BB, god knows we need to cost cut. But I see a real shift here.
With the BB going completely under the libs, I see a whole lot of SAHM's getting 4 hours a week for 12 months to get the PPL When ironically it would have been cheaper to pay them the BB lol
Just seems the govt will throw around the cash for a woman working half a shift a week, no questions asked, but for me with a working husband paying tax? hell no, don't expect the tax payer to fund your family.
