Many companies are refusing to furlough their staff, and instead insist on redundancy. This leaves a huge financial burden on many individuals and their families, and will only add to the financial crisis that we will no doubt have after this global pandemic.

The government is encouraging all companies to furlough by making this as simple as they can with back tracking dates and financial help. Yet companies are still ignoring this advice and putting themselves first.

We have personally been affected with my self employment ceasing, and then my partner suddenly losing his job with only a months pay and no furlough. This has meant we lost our rented home, and now have no income for the foreseeable future. Luckily we have been able to move in with family  and will get by with their help and support, but there will be many others who won't cope with this, especially those with a family to support and without a network to help.

Please let's all join together to make furlough mandatory for ALL companies, and to make sure companies backtrack fulrough for anyone who has lost their job because of this terrible virus outbreak. Let's force those businesses to look after their staff and to take responsibility in this dreadful time. 

Many thanks for your support, well wishes to you all
