Universal credit is pushing people into sex work

They applied for welfare and ended up in sex work. This MP explains how universal credit is failing women. 👎

    So if these women can find time to prostitute themselves surely they can find time to find legitimate work 🤗 just saying

    When applying for UC you have to wait 6 to 8 weeks for the money to come in and in the mean time what do you feed your family and how do you pay rent when all benefits are stopped. Plus if you are in dire need of money and 'borrow' or get a 'loan' from them you will be paying back the money and it will be cut off from UC weekly. Regarding jobs it is hard to get jobs and when you do it is still not enough to pay your bills and buy things.

    Universal credit ain’t bad it’s just bad people who can’t organise their money

    Just curious, How many guys were forced into prostituting themselves because of poverty? Or does poverty only effect women?

    Job vacancy’s mean nothing, I applied to hundreds of jobs while I was on job seekers allowance and I got a record total of 4 job interviews and not one of them hired me

    A lot of people lack money skills so when going from weekly/fortnightly to monthly they will struggle. Budgeting money needs to be part of the curriculum and would be more beneficial than learning about the Tudors for a month.

    I'm all for people working and not being 'lazy' but her responce was actually sickening. Not one ounce of her body felt anything towards anyone in that sentence.
