There are people who are self emp really struggling out there less work coming in and the possiblitly of self isolating,
The whole payout is a bit of a mess, but the goverment had to do something quick, and i guess hospitality and retail where hit first, but if you work for someone your sorted you get a basic wage you can just get by, but why is there a scale of pay to your job, surely it should be what you need to get by.
the goverment has rolled out a minumum of 2 k a month thats 24 k a year, i only earn that on a good year, yet self emp have to accept the state sick of £94 per week thats about £4800 a year sweet f a for a person delivering or sub for a bigger firm or just a sole trade, they could go bankrupt.
Not really fair, we should all be means tested, i have low means so i wouldnt want much or non at all depending on how long work dried up. however some poor buggers arnt on a lot and they live hand to mouth.
Yes money needed to be out quick but its been done a bit hamfisted
