On 9 September 2018, Channel 7's Sunrise programme discussed the ever-rising cost of childcare.
The Centre for Independent Studies says Australian childcare is unaffordable without a comprehensive rethink.
United Voice says the solution is for the Federal Government is to pay more (than what they are already paying, ie $7b now annually and $9.5b in 2-3 years' time).
The Federal Coalition Government says they have already added $1b more through the new Child Care Subsidy and they're not paying any more.
With a federal election due in 2019, what will a future Federal Labor Government do? What can the NSW State Government do as the state regulator? Can childcare ever be affordable to parents and taxpayers?
