Matt O'Brien started this petition to UK Government

The latest government statement:

‘’Employed - up to £2,500 per month, non means tested. Self employed - £376 per month, but means tested, and only if you have symptoms.’’

Lets look after the 5 million self-employed workforce and give them 80% of their median salary individually (according to their last 12 months of earnings), up to £2,500 per month, backdated to 1st March. Regardless of how much their partner earns.

Let’s not forget them. It’s only fair.

We’re calling on the UK Government to formally update their plan for the self-employed of all industries (including those freelancers set up as limited companies where they are the only director/employee), to match their support of the employed workforce during the Coronavirus Pandemic.
