Pay those who had job offers retracted 80% of the wage they would have earned.
Like many people affected by the collapse of Thomas Cook, I was a due to start a new job with another airline, and had just left my previous position, to have a very short break in order to prepare. The contract was retracted leaving me with no option but to claim job seekers allowance.
Having paid substantial income tax for over 20 years, I am now forced to look for work, despite it being incredibly difficult due to Covid-19. If I am lucky enough to find something, it means exposing my husband, who should be self isolating due to a chronic health condition, to the virus. Unfortunately this is the only way we can make ends meet. Please pay us, who have paid into the system for years, more than £73.10 per week, as you are now doing for furloughed staff or self employed.
