Counting on care work in Australia

Publisher: economic Security4Women, 2012

Status – CURRENT

Women are bearing the bulk of the care load – both paid and unpaid – and it is having a significant negative impact on their incomes and retirement savings. Unpaid care work restricts the capacity of carers to earn a living in general and to save for retirement in particular. Most paid care work is undervalued and underpaid and restricts the capacity of the worker to earn a decent living or save for retirement.
