    For some women like myself 6 months at my rate of pay would be more beneficial than cheaper childcare. What I earn in 6 months is equivalent to over 3 years worth of childcare fees ( after rebate). I would much prefer 6 months at my rate of pay than reduced childcare .

    That would be my preference too.

    Any scenario would benefit some woman more than others. What I mean is that for both options some women would be better off with one while other would be better off with the other.
    However both options would be an improvement for all working mothers to be.

    And cheaper childcare would also benefit Australian economy as a whole. Supposedly that's what the proposed PPL is all about, and bringing women back into the workforce, although I doubt it is about that very much...

    My point there isn't one size fits all.
    What we can all agree is that there needs to be greater support for working mothers

    To me that's not anything new, there has always been opposition even with party ranks. I suspected when I heard we were going over that it maybe pushed to the side
