Budget commitment to childcare is ‘about gender equality’: PM #Budget #commitment #childcare #gender #equality #englishheadline


The government’s budget commitment to childcare is “about gender equality” for women, says Prime Minister Anthony Albanese.

“The largest on-budget commitment that we made was to support childcare, not as welfare but as economic reform,” Mr Albanese said at a press conference on Monday.

“It’s about boosting productivity, it’s about boosting workforce participation, and importantly, it’s about gender equality.

“It’s about making sure that women can participate in the workforce, they can retire with higher incomes and higher superannuation going forward as well.”
