Families, Fertility and Maternity Leave
Families, Fertility and Maternity Leave. The debate over paid maternity leave has been linked to the concurrent debate over Australia ?s declining fertility. Although each of these subjects is important in its own right, neither can be divorced from the wider problem of a coherent and fair family policy. Yet this is happening. Serious attention to family policy and the pressing problems of family dysfunction, family taxation, and the retreat from marriage should underpin the development of a rational and acceptable approach to both maternity leave and fertility. "Families, Fertility and Maternity Leave" by Barry Maley is published by The Centre for Independent Studies.
