…and now he’s coming for the self – employed

Reposted from the Void

As part of his cunning plan, Gidiot Osborne – the Chancer (No – not a spelling mistake) of the Exchequer, now has his sights set on the self – employed.

Plans to raise the minimum wage will mean a brutal benefit cut for the lowest earning self-employed workers due to complex changes to in-work benefits.

When Universal Credit is fully introduced (stop laughing) then anybody who is self-employed will be subject to the ‘Minimum Income Floor’.  What this means is that when calculating in-work benefits, such as Tax Credits and Housing Benefit, the DWP will assume a level of income regardless of how much the self-employed worker is actually earning.  For most people this means that the rate of benefits they receive will be based on them earning the equivalent of the minimum wage for 35 hours a week.  This will apply even if they earnt nothing at all that month, potentially plunging people hundreds of pounds into rent arrears just because they’ve had a bit of a slow period.

You’ve got to ask yourself – is on drugs or what!

    Gideon the idiom, standing like a spoilt child. His nanny was his only best friend, and that is why he acts this way.

    I think all this cutting is seriously shitty, and now they want us to be China?

    Tory scum, you hate your mums. Because they never cuddled you.
