Adam has introduced legislation to help give people - especially those caring for others - a better work/life balance. This is a priority for Adam in Parliament.
Paid Parental Leave
The government has done a complete U-turn on paid parental leave, now seeking to slash the inadequate existing scheme. Adam and the Greens want to see a proper paid parental leave scheme and well-funded childcare that supports all families, especially those on low and middle incomes.
Better work / life balance
People are under growing pressure when trying to balance work and home responsibilities. Over two-thirds of women working full-time report chronic time pressure and part-timers are struggling too. Adam has introduced legislation to help give people – especially those caring for others – a better work/life balance. This is a priority for Adam.
If we’re serious about helping women return to work, we need more childcare places. Adam and the Greens have a plan to boost childcare and help existing centres expand.
