New analysis by the National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling (NATSEM) indicates one in four families in the child care system – over 270,000 families – will be worse off as a direct result of the Government’s child care changes.
According to the analysis, the tougher new work test and the cap on the child care subsidy price are the major reasons so many families will lose out.
We already know that some children will be pushed out of the child care system altogether, while others will have their access cut in half.
Unfortunately, the Government has refused to come clean about exactly who will be left worse off because of these changes.
For months, Labor has been asking for details of these child care changes.
Tony Abbott and Scott Morrison have blatantly refused to provide this information.
It is clear that this Budget is not the Budget for families that Tony Abbott promised.
