In the last years in UK we had the minimum wage increased. Sadly, toghether with that the inflation is getting higher and we can feel the prices going up.
Statutory Maternity Pay is same. And it is not enough to help mothers to survive. A child is bringing a lot of extra costs in the family. And in time, having a child become much more like buying a car: you must think twice if you can afford it. It is time to think that this childrens are the country's future and they will be the ones that will sustain the econony later so we can have a pension.
Statutory Maternity Pay should rise to £200/week or 90% of average weekly earnings wich one is lower for 33 weeks istead of £139 and this will make a huge improvement of life quality improvement for all the kids in their first year.
