We strongly believe that the self employed who are largely effected by the 2nd lockdown, should be treated the same as furlough employees and receive the same level of support given during the 1st lockdown.

The government is offering furloughed employees up to 80% of their wages for the second lockdown and up to 40% for self employed. 

There are many self employed workers who have been unable to work due to the governments restrictions, placed on their industries back in March. For example the wedding industry, Performing Arts and many more.. 

Many self employed have worked for years building up their businesses and paying their taxes. The self employed should be paid the same percentage as employees.
