Scrap the tax on social care workers in Wales

This petition had 3 supporters

The Welsh Labour Government has awarded a thank-you bonus of £500 to social care workers in Wales, in recognition of the special role they have played during the coronavirus crisis.

Despite the critical and often dangerous role social care workers play, the UK Tory Government has refused to exempt this special payment from tax.

It is not enough to simply clap for our carers every Thursday, we must do all we can to support them.

Every day these essential workers are putting themselves at risk to care for us all and should not be penalised financially for the work that they do.

Please join Mick Antoniw MS and I in calling on the UK Tory Government to reverse its decision and make this payment tax-exempt.

Our carers are some of the lowest-paid workers in our communities, and they deserve to receive the full benefit of this payment.
