Our "modern" economies assume that this is always to be an unpaid position, and that causes all sorts of follow on problems. There's plenty more similar work that needs doing, which again, our economies have declared must always be done without remuneration.

Don't people get child allowance, or doesn't that count?

They do, but I'm not sure how many people would find £80 a month for a 24 hour job an acceptable rate of pay.

I went to have a look at the tax site to see how much it was but I couldn't make head nor tail of it. There are so many figures that I couldn't work it out. Do you get more if you are working? :think:

Anyway, I'm sure those people who have children and are working would be generous enough to pay more taxes so as those who have children and are not working can have more. In the meantime, I'd suggest that those people who cannot, or have chosen not to, have children, pay less tax. That seems fair.
