    They were saying on the news last night that even if the new mat scheme makes it through the lower house, it will almost certainly be blocked by the upper house. Hardly any pollies are for it, even many liberals are against it. And with this new tax they want to bring in - it just doesn't make any sense to me.

    I'd prefer to see them channelling money into childcare affordability and accessibility personally. This will be the biggest driving factor of women getting back into work - if childcare is unavailable or unaffordable many just won't consider going back to work, no matter how much mat leave entitlements are thrown at them. I've already had to enrol my unborn child into childcare as there is a 2 year waiting list!!!! Unbelievable! It shouldn't be that long!

    Agreed, I've already enrolled my unborn baby into a few child care centres. But not sure it'll be worth it as it is so expensive, plus petrol of 3 hour commute to work and parking. Pretty much means there won't be much left over.
    A few people I have spoke to also think this ppl scheme won't come into effect if the debt tax also comes into effect

    Here you go women. Take at least six months off after having a baby, and then if you do decide to return to work let me add in an extra incentive of taxing you more... Is he trying to keep women at home??
    It's to be funded by a levy on large businesses, not through personal income tax revenue.

    No the new >$80k tax is allegedly just a temp thing to address the deficit.

    The PPL is meant to be paid for by big business (and of course is also somewhat self-funded by the tax that is paid back on it, and also the tax that is generated by keeping women in the workforce longer, which PPL has been proved by economic studies to do globally).

    However if you earn over $80k a year your salary and career alone are a good incentive to get back to work.
    Even if you need to pay an extra $800 in tax a year.

    I for one don't mind paying a bit more tax in principle but considering how the current Govt seems to be spending it on utter crap, I do mind!
