Give working mums support to pay child care for children between birth – 3yrs
Why should those who are unemployed be given free child care and not parents who ae already working, now we aren’t against the unemployed but we do not think it is fair parents who have or get a job should not be able to receive free child care places or at least a deduction.
Parents who are already in receipt of free childcare have this taken away if they find a job and earn above a certain threshold.
Two parent families have found that the mum is unable to return to her job as the childcare costs are far too steep, people are not able to better themselves or their child’s life due to the extortionate prices of child care.
One such mum has set up a petition in the hopes that the government may rethink their childcare plan and make changes to help working families.
Sami Austin said on her petition “I am a new working mum and I can not believe how expensive child care is, working on the national minimal wage how are mums able to work to cover child care costs when it takes over 3/4 of their wage. Why penalize the people who WANT to work”.
If you agree with Sami why not sign the petition below
