Support housewives by ...

A thought hit me recently on how to support housewives in Singapore. The concept is simple. If someone is not working, taking care of the children/house, that means someone else is working and may be working quite hard to support the family.

Therefore, to relieve the financial load of the family, the government should bring back the family declaration of taxes, where the amount of tax payable is upped as we're talking about combined income than a single income.

Simplicity aside, this will in a way give the support to people who stay at home to take care of the family. It's not easy to take care of the family alone and using this combined income tax declaration, you can also calculate the monthly income per household member. Using this calculation, you can also give workfare to further support the family.

A family should not be penalised if the family needs someone to stay at home to look after the family.
