Cbi Request Government Bailout For Child Care

Recommended Posts

Absolutely OP. Amazing how much unquestioning coverage this is getting from the BBC. No mention either that maybe parents might be the right people to, err, parent. Work like slaves to pay exhorbitant mortgage, outsource child rearing to the state. Rinse and repeat.

Incredible.Employers want "other" taxpayers to pay for the childcare for their employees and also to fund tax cuts and probably more in work benefits so they dont have to put up wages.

The CBI and the government are both desperate to keep people tied to huge mortgages and debt so they have them trapped forever.

Why arent the CBI asking for new houses at the £60k cost price so that one partner can stay at home and look after their own children?.Or why not campaign for the state pension age to be lowered to 60 so grandparents can provide the childcare?.

Rentiers appeal for more rent seeking help.Government nods.

So they can continue to reap the profit and pay shit wages.

This one is particularly incredulous given the recovereh is going so well.

1/ We would not need both parents working if the houses cost it's built value and not it is speculative value

2/ In continental Europe the child care is provided at schools as before and after school clubs. The total costs to the state or parents is only about £100 pm. Perhaps somebody should speak with the government that there is no reason to throw out the window £1000 every month ...

Mr Cridland told the BBC that the reason the CBI wanted to see more reasonable childcare costs was so that families "can make a even bigger contributions to the world of work".

There must be something better than that.

Well most have had below inflation wage increases but that's OK because the govt has been increasing the income tax threshold to make that wage increase slightly larger....

More bailouts for business!

Why not scrap the wages altogether, so " businesses" will not have any labour costs?

Instead of the wages, the goverment will give us " benefits" that will totally replace our wages.

That will surely enable GDP "growth".

And why not go further - Government finances 100% of all operating business costs free of charge whilst the profits are skimmed off by the CEO's and their cronies.

It has been already operating with banks, funds, numerous other parasitic " businesses" including those related to housing.

What started off 14 years to me as a housing bubble/crisis is slowly becoming one mother of massive problem increasing over the the next few decades to a tipping point not seen since the 20's. There's just no sensible government any more.

All IMHO of course.

The nice man from the CBI thinks there is a lack of skills to make sandwiches in the UK.

What he actually means is that there is a lack of naturalised Brits prepared to live 3 to a room in Neasden in order to make it worth their while.

****** the CBI.

Thank you all for your posts.

It's nice to know I am not the only one that thinks what ever the CBI wants is not in the interest of the average person.

It all comes down to capital vs Labour.
