Ensuring that people on EMA get the same amount of money as those on jobseekers allowance.

People that receive EMA should receive the same amount of funding as people on job seekers allowance.It is very tempting to drop out of college when your friend is on a decent wage in a full time job and your receiving £30 a week . Those on jobseekers allowance that are not getting out there and actually searching for jobs are earning around £100 every two weeks ( I recieve £60 every 2 weeks). It's us young people who need to buy our own equipment and travel fares. I believe that by increasing the amount of EMA there will be more young people wanting to better themselves which in the long term will provide a better economy.
