Working Full time Isn't Beneficial - From Amanda P


Dear PFV. Hi to everyone and I enjoy your blog a lot. I have a partner who is in prison but I cope well and work full time to provide for our children and of course to keep a roof over our heads.
This weekend, I am astounded as to how many families I know who are on benefits have up and offed to the seaside. I work full time, I work hard and I can't afford half of what these people are doing this bank holiday weekend. I know I am on my soap box and I am sorry if I am offending anyone, but there is seriously something bloody wrong with our system if people on benefits can afford to up and off to the seaside. It actually depresses me to think that I would be better off on state benefits!
