    Pretty sure it's about primary and non-primary carer, not male or female.

    Nah I distinctly remember them saying fathers only get 2 weeks and how that may be construed as unfair. They may change it down the track, but at least for now it's only 2 weeks.

    I haven't read any replies. I think it's way too over the top. 6 months full pay, paid for by the taxpayer? Come on. At some point women (and men) have to take responsibility for funding their own plans to have kids. Sure some assistance is ok but I believe the line should be drawn much earlier than 6 months leave full pay.

    I agree with you Delirium!

    Isn't it going to be funded by yet another business tax? And yep, I'm pretty sure that will be passed on to the consumer. I agree with you on this one Vp.

    What are suggested cut offs if 150,000 is considered too high?
