No debate, just pointing out that's it's not only cost and availability of CC that is stopping women working FT.

He never intended it to get through. His intention was to get the vote from working women then let the lefties block it and sell it as their fault. Just in this thread several people have confirmed how much he has pulled the wool over people's eyes.
Ironically if you had voted for labor, Rudd probably would have brought out a more attractive but middle of the road PPL scheme by now.

If the government want women back to work sooner (which will happen if the "double dipping" ends) they should also expect breastfeeding rates to plummet. There would of been no way I could of continued to breastfeed to 12 months (let alone 6 months) if I had returned to work.
They need to think of a catchy phrase- something like "breast may be best for your baby, but don't be selfish, going back to work is best for the economy!" Hmm doesn't quite have the same ring to it....

I am the sole income earner of my husband and I as he has just started a new business. We are expecting our first in September and have had to make adjustments as a result. I'm sorry but I don't think it is the responsibility of the government to take care of my family. I am grateful that I get anything. The country is in debt and cuts have to be made. If someone is lucky to receive entitlements from their work why should they also get money from the government. We don't have to work for the money given by the government so why should we expect anymore than what they are willing to give. The LNP is not for big business, it encourages people to stand on their own and use the life skills they have been given. People complain about childcare so the government responds, but that isn't good enough. Stop complaining and just be grateful that we get anything!
