    • Abstract:
      The article reports that a paid maternity leave scheme would provide a stimulus to the economy and should not be abandoned by the federal government because of the economic crisis, according to Australian Nursing Federation (ANF) national secretary Ged Kearney. Responding to media reports that the Productivity Commission recommendation for an 18 week paid maternity leave scheme may be abandoned or delayed due to economic concerns, Kearney said such a scheme was already long overdue.
