Increase Housing Benefit Allowance for Families in Employment

Additional Information

Increase the Allowed earnings from employment criteria for working families.
Wheres this bonus the government spoke about returning to work making you better off.
Housing Benefit is paid to earners in part time employment based on your earnings ,at present this is 65% of your earnings taken off your Housing Costs and 20 % taken off your Council Tax benefit entitlement which is still too high.
This is not an incentive to work as returning to work menas more rent to pay,to make this figure fair,only 50% of our earned income should be taken into account and 10% for Council Tax.
