raise statutory maternity pay to at least minimum wage
After hearing a report today and experiencing getting into debt because of having a child i believe the statutory maternity pay should be at least minimum wage.
It should be at least minimum wage for the first two children born with it decreasing back to standard smp for every child born there after.
I feel this would also help with lowering the amount of applicants for housing/housing benefit as they would be able to support or contribute better to the running of the home.
I also believe it would stop people having to use pay day loans/ loan sharks to get by.
