No one on Universal Credit should be worse off – sign the petition

Stop Universal Credit making families worse off.

To: Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Amber Rudd

No one moving onto Universal Credit should be left worse off.

The minister in charge, Amber Rudd, admits this benefit system isn’t fit for purpose – she even promised to delay forcing more people onto Universal Credit.

Carl was left with less money after being forced onto Universal Credit when his wife passed away. So he’s started a petition on the 38 Degrees website to stop Universal Credit making other families worse off too.  If we’re going to make this a scandal Amber Rudd can’t ignore, we’re going to need to pile in behind Carl.

Here is Carl’s story:
“I moved onto Universal Credit two years ago when my wife sadly lost her battle with cancer. I had to quit my job to look after my two young children and I was left waiting for weeks before my payment came through. Basic rights are put in jeopardy such as food, water, and a roof over your families head.”

And Carl’s not alone.
