Childcare subsidy cuts would hit working women, poor families hardest: group

Childcare subsidy cuts would hit working women, poor families hardest: group | poor families | Scoop.it
The participation of women in the workforce could drop significantly if childcare subsidies are reduced, a community support organisation warns.
- Cxrmxn -'s insight:

This news report is about an organisation wanting to recommend the system of childcare subsidies. However, parents does not accept any corresponding relaxation of the new quality standards introduced by the previous government.The key to participation rates in the workforce is a well managed childcare payment scheme. I personally like the way the current scheme includes both means tested and non-means tested elements. I'm less convinced about one off payments or maternity leave schemes because ,unlike childcare schemes, they are not centered around development and maintenance of sustainable work arrangements.Wages today are not a living wage. The government subsidises low income families with housing, child endowment and healthcare cards because their wages are too low. The rich have gotten richer and the poor have gotten poorer and the poor children suffer for something that isn't their fault.
