05 Sep Anglicare says minimum wage rise not enough to cover lost healthcare spending
Anglicare says minimum wage rise not enough to cover lost healthcare spending.
‘Our Government should be looking at how we can offer more benefits while not cutting the hours or the wages of workers on public assistance,’ it said in a statement.
It will use new ‘in-work benefits’ t카지노 사이트o help lower income people, such as children’s living assistance, buy health care.
The policy will also encourage low and medium income workers to use private healthcare to supplemen바카라사이트t public money.
Liberal Democrat Health Minister Jonathan Bell also confirmed the policy in a statement.
‘It will have a cost to the economy that works for the millions of workers with the best conditions but cannot provide the affordable coverage and treatment they need,’ he said.
Mr Bell said the policy could save the economy millions while cutting down on healthcare waiting lists which are already stretched, the Daily Mail reports.
However, Labour’s shadow health secretary Sarah Champion called the proposal a ‘breathtakingly cruel and cynical attack on the vulnerable’
A spokesman for the Department of Health said: ‘We know the proposed policy will have significant consequences for vulnerable patients and their families.
‘It is absolutely vital that we can help our poor sick patients pay for health care by increasing their income.
‘The department is currently undertaking a rev더킹카지노iew into the introduction of a universal basic income with a view to making this benefit available to people who can least afford it.
‘It is a policy which is important to address the real issues of inequality and poverty in the country.
‘This is about putting the needs of those with the greatest needs, who often face the highest cost, first.
‘It is about ensuring that everyone has the means to pay for health and mental health. It should not be about providing welfare for the wealthy at the expense of anyone else.’
In the run up to the General Election, the Liberal Democrats launched an ambitious scheme that would see a universal basic income paid by all adults without children, meaning a family in poverty could earn £35 a week – £30 for a lone parent.
