Time to Stop Squeezing Family Incomes

Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Local MP Meg Munn joined with her trade union Usdaw, the shop workers union, to call on the coalition government to stop squeezing family incomes by continuing to cut the help they get through tax credits and other benefits.

At a time when many hard working families are already concerned about how difficult it is to manage their finances, Usdaw arranged to take some of their members to Parliament to meet MPs.

Meg said:

“I was pleased to join members of Usdaw at their recent event at the House of Commons. Trade unions like Usdaw have an important job to do - speaking up for their members.

More than one in every four children are already growing up in poverty and of those children, 62% has at least one person in their home who is employed. Families around the country are getting squeezed tighter and tighter it’s time for the coalition government to stop cutting and start listening to hard pressed families.”

John Hannett, General Secretary of Usdaw said:

“Since coming to power the coalition government’s austerity measures have already taken hundreds of pounds out of the pockets of hard working families. Our members tell us, that despite working hard, it is getting more and more difficult to pay the bills, put food on the table and clothe their children.

We are concerned that things are only going to get worse - as the government’s flawed bedroom tax comes into force and further changes to tax credits later this year, hit almost 3 million families who will lose on average - 137 each month. It is time for this government to do a U turn stop cutting family incomes and start to support hard working families.”
