Carers Could Lose CA Over £3

October 9, 2014

A new minimum wage has come into force this month, with the hourly rate going from £6.31 to £6.50.

It might sound like good news, but the reality is more complicated.

If you care for a friend or relative and also work part-time, the increase could cost you more than £60 per week.

Moneybox presenter Paul Lewis explained the catch to BBC Breakfast presenters Naga Munchetty and Charlie Stayt.

      There is a link embedded on the page to the BBC News story that Same Difference are sharing here. I think it’s actually a video clip on the BBC News Business section.
