Does the current scheme apply equally to men? I don't understand the argument tbh. Why doesn't what is being proposed apply irrespective of gender?

Sorry if I'm wrong I just can't find any info that says the proposed only applies to women. I'm pretty sure they can't do that

Men will get paid parental leave based on the mother's salary, not on their own. Therefore, if the father is the higher earner the couple will end up with a reduction in income if the father takes the parental leave, but not if the mother takes the parental leave. In this situation the scheme discourages the couple from choosing the father to take the leave.
ETA. my info is based on the details in this article. Happy to be corrected if wrong.
