38 Degrees have a petition to pause UC rolloutMake Text Bigger
I would like to share the 38 Degrees petition to pause the rollout of Universal Credit: click here
“To Esther McVey:
Universal Credit is a scheme that replaces lots of different benefits. But it’s been riddled with problems since it was first trialed. It’s seen families relying on food banks, people forced onto the streets, even, in some cases, deaths. There’s mounting opposition to Universal Credit, including influential Conservative politicians speaking against it. Let’s make sure the government doesn’t roll out a system that:
- Makes people worse off when they transition on to it
- Has sanctions that are proven not to work
- Leaves people waiting for weeks before receiving the money they need to survive”
Universal Credit has also been a nightmare for landlords and tenants with a marked increase in rental arrears in every area it has so far been rolled out.
At the time of publishing this petition had over 101,000 signatures
