Pregnant working women should be entitled to the same benefits as everyone else
This petition had 44 supporters
As a working pregnant woman I find it disgraceful that I am not entitled to the same rights as someone who does not work.
I have been working since I was 16 and never lived off benefits. Now I am pregnant I am low pay and will need to get buy with only basic maternity pay. I am not entitled to Income support, sure start grant and free milk and food vouchers.
I do not see why working parents get nothing and those who choose not to work are given every hand out in benefits there is.
Why should working parents be treated differently? we should all be entitled to the same. I find it unfair that working parents go off and work hard and all their tax money is going to those who don't want to work and just because we work and earn money we are not allowed any help money wise to look after our children.
