    It's not going ahead, they want to do it but it still needs to get through, this is there pushing pin for the budget this year with the parenting changes, unless both sides approve it nothing goes ahead.

    I have a whingy baby atm but I saw last night on the news that they were still trying to get it though from last election but that Labor vowed to fight it. So it could go either way.

    I've only been reading about the changes in this thread. Can someone tell me what's happening to PPL is is being scrapped all together or staying at 18 weeks at minimum wage or something else?

    With regards to CCR, it's great I'd childcare becomes more affordable but is anything being done to assist availability? Quality?

    It won't get through, everything is only a proposal at this stage. PPL won't be scrapped, they want to stop people accessing both maternity leave workplace agreements and PPL

    To answer the bottom question...no! No new places, it's going to make it harder to find a place. There's also no jobs for all these women they're trying to force back into the workplace anyway.

    Family tax benefits are not being scrapped alltogether. The large family supplement may be scrapped, and FTB cut out when the child is 6. The government is giving more support to working mums to re enter the workforce. As a SAHM, i support the new changes - but it will be easy for me to returm to work when my youngest is 6, it might be harder for others. Note that families will still receive FTB A.

    Note the bottom left corner. The proposed budget does in fact rely on government agreeing to scrap family tax benefits, which will never happen.

    But SAHMs have access to 1 day cc subsidised per week now if they earn under 65k, if they earn over 65k they will pay full price unless they meet work requirements. So it will open up places from SAHMs using childcare 3 or 4 days a week.

    So that should come at the cost of another child's place? How is that any better, that's just the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. We shouldn't have a system that steals from one section and gives to another.

    I'm with you but if you are an employer and you are giving 10k as paid parental leave to your employees and you know that they will only get 2k extra from the gvt, why give 10k at all?

    It won't change anything for your employees, they will still get a total of 12k, just everything will come from gvt pockets.
    And you will have saved 10k.

    Different story for employers offering well over 12k.

    Look, obviously this is a highly emotional topic, and im not interested in catastrophising things. But no,it is not rich getting richer and poor getting poorer. Lower income earners get a much higher rebate. Families earning under 65k get a day a week for a sahm to put the kids in care. The government wont fund a sahm to have their kids in care 3, 4 days a week - fair enough. It is not taking places from a child who has two working parents. You are getting very emotional, and i am only really interested in discussing the facts, sorry.
