Universal Credit disaster behind foodbank rise
Universal Credit is being blamed for the record rise in the use of foodbanks as families required them to provide 14 million meals in the last 12 months.
Over 1.5 million food packages were handed out in the year up to April 2019, a rise of 20%, with over half a million going to children.
At the same time, the Tories have given the rich nearly £20 billion a year in cuts to Corporation Tax alone!
Universal Credit must be scrapped and replaced with benefits that provide enough to live - paid to all those who need them. And there should be investment in a mass scheme of job creation - providing decent jobs to working-class people, with a minimum wage of at least £10 an hour.
