    The trouble is no government is going to force companies to pay a “living wage” to the un-skilled worker and housing benefit and other paid for benefits are calculated into the amount “you need to live on”. It’s a total farce, keep the wages low so benefits are paid but then reduce the amount of benefit being paid because the recipients are taking to much from the tax payer.

    Just a question about the table, since when can a person get £146 per week as they have to look after someone with a long term illness, I live with my partner and he gets £55 per week for looking after me, which is less than Jsa I think. ???

    Speaking of the UK, some do not even know they are on benefits, as they do not see things such as family tax credit, working tax credit, housing benefit etc as welfare the same as IB or ESA or JSA. This is the level of ignorance in this nation.
