Pay international students weekly wage equal to 20 hrs to meet monthly expenses

Petition Details

A huge number of International students in Bachelors, Masters and PhD level depend on the weekly 20hrs work limit pay to meet daily and monthly expenses like feeding, house rent and other life essential payments.
Being unable to return to our home country and unable to work, we need urgent help.

Additional Information

As we have no other alternatives. As a minimum, a weekly wage equal to the 20 hrs work limit pay is required to keep our expenses running. We are limited in the work we can take on as we do not hold a tier 2 visa and most if not all do not qualify for the emergency pay of up to 80% of sick pay.

It would be a huge relief and definitely save lives that are not at immediate risk of virus threat if this demand can be met.
