The UK Government: Please abandon your plans for a minimum income floor for self employed single parents
Many single parents are working hard in small self employed businesses. These take time to grow and are extremely valuable. The minimum income floor will impact thousands of single parent families and leave them unable to continue. Entrepreneurial single parents are a great role model for their children and being self employed gives single parents the flexibility to also be present and care for their own children.The introduction of a minimum income floor for self employed single parents will plunge so many hard working single parent families into either poverty or unemployment.
Please think again and see the huge and valuable contribution that many thousands of single parents are making in being self employed and trying to create something for the future of their families.
