Give Asylum Seekers right to work 4 weeks after arrival in UK

Petition Details

Asylum seekers are not allowed to work and provide for their families. If Government allowed them to apply for work after 4 weeks of arrival there would be many benefits. Many highly skilled people are stuck in the system, unable to support their families when they could.

Additional Information

We are denying asylum seekers their right to work and continue their lives whilst missing out on the skills they could contribute to the UK. Only this Government can make this change to allow them to apply for work. This policy deprives Britain of the skills they offer and makes it impossible for their children to integrate and get a proper education.
