L-PLATE PORTER ADMITS HE IS CUTTING $950 MILLION FROM PAID PARENTAL LEAVE

L-Plate Social Services Minister Christian Porter has today admitted that the Turnbull Government is still cutting about $950 million from paid parental leave:

 

KENEALLY: “So there’s still a cut of $950 million in the PPL, would that be an accurate number?”

 

PORTER: “Yes. I think it was about $990 million minus about $40 million so that soundsabout right.”

Christian Porter’s so-called ‘softening’ of paid parental leave is nothing more than a con and a cut. It is still a savage cut that will leave thousands of new parents worse off.

 

The Liberals are still treating new mums like they did in the Budget, when Scott Morrison called them rorters and double-dippers.

 

Mr Porter’s claim that this is a ‘compromise’ proposal shows that he is all spin and no substance.

 

The Government’s cuts to paid parental leave will mean thousands of new mums will be forced to spend less time with their newborn babies.

 

This Liberal Government’s record on paid parental leave has been nothing short of atrocious.

 

Today’s announcement is just the latest chapter in the Abbott-Turnbull Government’s shambolic handling of paid parental leave.

 

Australian families now know they can’t trust Malcolm Turnbull and Christian Porter when it comes to paid parental leave.
