There are now thousands and thousands of hard working people who have found themselves out of work due to this pandemic 

Considering work is difficult to find in most sectors how can we survive being used to earning £1000/ £2000 a month now on universal credit  receiving £410 a month. 

Irs impossible to pay for utilities, mortgage rent, council tax, food on this amount 

The retail sector has suffered as people are shopping online,   traval  have cut back as to less people flying,  hospitality as to restaurant's and pubs shut.

The only work at present seems to be delivery drivers and that is poorly paid 

What jobs are there. I'm 58 years old and it's difficult enough for the younger generation let alone myself.  Surely the government has to increase universal credit even if they can for the next few years until more jobs are created.
