C/A

On the day that the new legal minimum wage comes into effect, just what exactly are or have C/UK to get something done about raising the C/A.
Years of promising us action and we're still in the same situation.
Is anyone pressuring the DWP, or are we just continuing to let it go.

Hi Scott,

In this 'joined up & connected world' we live in (tongue in cheek), I would have hoped that the increase in wages limit would have been fed directly into the DWP as part of the programme of change that it would have created.

But hey ho, it just seems that is yet another example of where we 'the carers' are being ignored.

In an already discriminating world where earnings limits (£110) are directly applied in an illogical manner, I won't hold my breath for an increase anytime soon! :angry:

Ash,
