Mums left behind as government refuses to pay super on parental leave

  Published: 29 Mar 2022

The Budget is another missed opportunity to address the gender super gap and take action to put an end to the $5 billion a year unpaid super scandal.

Despite the gender super gap getting worse for many working mothers, the government has failed to heed the findings of the Retirement Income Review and has refused to pay super on Commonwealth Parental Leave Pay.

It is disappointing this was not among government changes to the scheme announced in the budget.
