Lee Reem started this petition to UK Government and Parliament

The government has recently put in place furlough pay that protects the PAYE employees and self employed with 80% of their salaries that can be claimed due to those people being forced out of work due to lockdown. Which is brilliant. 

But what has been put in place for key workers?

Some , like myself , are in a relationship, partnership or marriage with both working as key workers, who also have children. Both salaries are essential to keep a house and clear the Bills. It's not possible for 1 out of the 2 not to work as they are entitled to claim absolutely nothing.  So to keep a roof over there heads both have to work full time, with young children now during this lockdown, the only way this is possible is to work opposing shifts. It's a major strain on physical and mental health aswell as a major strain on the relationship and family life, let alone the danger they are putting themselves in going into work everyday risking contracting the virus.

Surely these people, the key workers of this country, keeping the infrastructure in tact during these worrying and testing times should be recognised and relieved of income tax during the lockdown and COVID19 crisis. I think they deserve that atleast.

Please consider all above and help this petition get recognition and hopefully make a difference to the key workers that are making a huge difference to our lives.
