Letter to the Editor-Thursday, October 10:No need for babies?

WE HAVE just stopped the $5000 Baby Bonus for Australian women to have children plus the $450 school bonus for each child - does this mean that we don't want Australia's women to have children?

Is it because we can get plenty of immigrants from Middle Eastern countries and with our 457 visas conditions being eased the Abbott Government can bring in all the cheap labour that they can get?

This will smash the conditions and pay scales of all Aussie workers.

It also means that we do not have to invest in TAFE or university courses as we can get these people from anywhere a lot cheaper.
