Is there any wonder some of our young don’t want to work.

 

Young man age 18 was unemployed and receiving £56.25 now working and receiving £81 per week, he lives with unemployed parents and they don’t pay rent or council tax, because he now works, he as to pay £35 a week rent to the council and £10 a month council tax. He is now £12 a week worse off than not working.

Which just goes to show that the minimum wage is not fit for purpose.

That's incorrect. The three of them, put together, now have to pay rent and council tax; why are his parents not contributing their part?

My guess is his parents will be of the attitude that the rent/CT being charged is because he got off his arse and got a job. If he didn't they wouldn't have to pay it so why should they chip in, they're unemployed and only those that work have to pay dues.

 

It's a pathetic view IMO.

The council send the bill to the son, they are still exempt. But it would still makes them worse off with him working.

Sorry I wasn't clear; they are unemployed because of disability, if that makes any difference.

If/when the economy picks up again and decent jobs start apearing, employer's will be looking for those that have worked rather than claimed dole for ages.
