Change to the take home pay for universal credit.

This petition had 412 supporters

Universal credit is taking 63p off every pound earned after earning £192 a month which isn't even the total of working 16 hours on minimum wage, this sum equals to working 6.6 hours a week at minimum wage. 

For example, I personally earned £550 at £7.50 ph minimum wage and got £226 taken off that. 

This petition is for parliament to reconsider the percentage of how much they take off each pound earned, and the minimum threshold limit needs to be raised to at least 16 hours per week at minimum wage.

Being left 6 weeks at the beginning of a claim is a long time to go without any money to then be penalised for working , wanting to bring in some extra money / overtime isn't possible to do when universal credit will take the over time off you.
