My change of opinion
10:00am Tuesday 8th May 2012 in Letters
I’D like to inform people of my point of view that might rather challenge some of you.
I used to feel that the average person in England was rather lazy for working at jobs. I have had what we in South Africa call an ‘Om keur’ – an about-turn. So here goes my experience.
I work part-time in a supermarket in Abingdon. If I work more than 15 hours a week, I will not only become de-registered with Job Seekers, I may lose part, or all, of my Housing Allowance.
If this is brutally correct, then I cannot serve a customer for my boss after this period is finished. I would like the Government for me – yes, just a lowly subject of Great Britain – to review and, if possible, perhaps revise this matter of Job Seekers’ Allowance and Housing Benefit.
