Increase ALL unemployed benefits by an extra £20 a week due to Covid-19.
We want the Government to Urgently pay the £20 COVID-19 increase to ALL Unemployed People receiving state unemployment benefits like JSA. NOT just those on Universal Credit.
Please Pay Immediately, with backpay of the £20 increase, and compensation for Hardship endured due to Government Wrongs.
Through ZERO Fault of their own, many Unemployed CLAIMANTS are receiving 'BAD Differences' in government financial assistance' during COVID-19. Currently Only Universal Credit claimants get the extra £20 week.
There is significant hardship, and Grave Mental Illness issues occurring now or in the future.
IT’S HARD TO BUDGET Unemployment Benefit, & 'Keeping COVID Safe', such as by keeping the windows open for ventilation in cold weather leads to extra costs.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
