 - There won’t be higher wages for carers – but if you employ one you’ll pay less tax
– There won’t be more houses – but if you can buy one you’ll pay a bit less tax
– Women’s jobs are no better paid or more secure – but men’s jobs and earnings haven’t improved either, so there’s more gender equality
