Why more and more working people are falling into the poverty trap

A report out today reveals that six million people in work are living in poverty

A report out today reveals that six million people in work are living in poverty

MORE than six million working people are living in poverty due to low incomes or lack of hours, a York charity warned today.

About 6.1 million people are living in poverty in working households – a higher number than the 5.1 million living in poverty in workless households, a report from the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) says.

The extent of in-work poverty has been blamed on low pay and lack of hours, said the annual Monitoring Poverty report, written by the New Policy Institute (NPI).

Julia Unwin, chief executive of the Clifton-based JRF, said: “The most distinctive characteristic of poverty today is the very high number of working people who are also poor.

“Many more people have experienced poverty since the downturn, cycling in and out of insecure, short-term and poorly paid jobs.

“Tackling poverty requires a comprehensive strategy, but overcoming the frail jobs market must be the starting point.”

The research has found that under-employment stands at 6.5 million and the number of people working part-time but wanting full-time work is now 1.4 million, up by 500,000 since 2009. A willingness among workers to do fewer hours is keeping unemployment in check, JRF said.

Meanwhile, the number of working families receiving working tax credits – payments to top up wages – has risen by 50 per cent since 2003, to 3.3 million in 2012. About 4.4 million jobs were found to pay less than £7 an hour.

Peter Kenway, director of NPI, said: “This year’s report challenges the myths surrounding poverty. Changes across five decades demonstrate poverty is not inevitable – reductions in child and pensioner poverty show that.

“The much cited ‘never-worked’ households actually only make up a very small part of the total number of workless households. The high level of in-work poverty undermines any idea that better incentives to enter work, the centrepiece of Universal Credit, is some kind of cure-all.”

The findings also show there was a dynamic nature of poverty, with people moving in and out of work and poverty, with almost five million people claiming Job Seekers’ Allowance (JSA) at least once in the last two years The turnover of those moving on and off JSA is significant – half stop claiming within three months.

JRF said changes to the benefit system and a combination of different cuts will hit a large number of families. “These overlapping effects are something to which the government has paid little attention,” said a JRF spokesman.

 

‘Life is a daily struggle’

YORK resident Paul Taylor* lives with the daily struggle of trying to afford escalating bills while living on the minimum wage.

Paul, 47, who lives with his teenage daughter in Burnholme, said despite working full time as a handyman, his minimum wage salary made life difficult.

He said his monthly salary just covered the cost of his mortgage, food shopping, council tax, running a car and paying for energy bills – for which he is in arrears.

Mr Taylor said: “It’s a real struggle. This time last year I was really, really struggling. Last year was diabolical. This year I have got child tax credits and working tax credits so it’s a little bit better, but still a struggle, especially coming up to Christmas.”

Mr Taylor said he was proud to have a strong work ethic, but said he could not remember finding things as tough as he had in recent years, “It’s making my hair go grey. I would say I’m worse off than I used to be,” he said.

You hear Mr Cameron go on about how you will be better off being in work, its simply not true... I am in private rented and I am financially worse off than somebody in a council house on full benefits... The government has spent too much time looking at the welfare bill and reducing it with blanket cuts, instead of looking at a fairer way to impose cuts. I pay £1100 per month for my energy, rent, council tax and water rates.... I feel resentful that there is £75 bill in tax evasions, energy companies and super markets are making billions in profit and finally I know if I want to be better off I have to close my business and consider moving to Selby or Harrogate and invest another 2 years getting my business started up again.... There are solutions to be found, but both the Government or YCC just want a quick fix and are not interested in the welfare of their citizens x

“Humphrey – have you seen the headlines? ‘6 million working people living in poverty’. We’ll have to do something about this.”
“Certainly Prime Minister. . . We could do what Mungabe have done”.
“Mungabe?”
“A republic in central Africa, Prime Minister.”
“What did they do?”
“Well first of all you must understand the principle of the ‘poverty line’. This suggests that anyone whose income is less than 60% of the national median income is living in poverty”
“Median?”
“The level at which half the population earns more and half earns less”
“Of course, of course - so?”
“So what the government of Mungabe did, was to even out everyone’s income by taking from the wealthy and giving to the poor.”
“Did it work?”
“Well in a manner of speaking – the people who were earning a living stopped working because their money was being given to the people who weren’t, so now nobody works, they just sit about doing nothing. They are all living below the bread-line with hundreds dying of starvation every day. But no-one is living below the poverty line as they all have about the same income”
“But . . “
“Contrast this with Segovia”
“Segovia?”
“A principality on the Mediterranean, Prime Minister. 40% of the population are millionaires”
“Lucky them.”
“Well not actually Prime Minister. Unfortunately the other 60% are billionaires, so in fact the millionaires are living way below the poverty line”
“But that’s nonsense”
“Yes, Prime Minister”
“Umm . I think we’ll turn a blind eye to this one, don’t you?”
“Very wise, Prime Minister”

No one doubts there are people who are struggling BUT at the risk of sounding heartless what actually is poverty in the UK?
People may not be well off but everyone gets a roof everyone eats or gets to go to school Again not necessarily what they want but its there.
Help is available for all. We have to understand the mindless spending of |Labour in the last parliament has bust the country so its going to get tougher for all and much as I feel for those with little its a fact of life that if we dont have money for anything other than basic support that's the way its going to be.
What on earth to JRF see as a way iof resolving this..Last time they got invoved in a social endeavour ie building houses in York they took a huge goverment subsidy to pay for it..Where wil this come from in the future?Without subsidies they would not exist. I have no doubt they do a good job but bleating about things without coming up with practical solutions is not an answer

myself and my partner work full time, we live in a council house because we can not raise the money to buy our own home. full time wages in york are not all that good! We recently had a child (we are in our late 30s and never been out of work) and my other half is now on maternity leave, we have lost over £700 a month and it is now a struggle! We also know a couple who have also just had a child and one of them worked part time. They actually get more money now than they did when they were both still working. so i no how stupid this country is when it comes to keeping the incentive to working full time. Would we be better off changing our circumstanses and claiming benifits?
Unfortinately i would be to embarrased to claim benifits and i would hate not to work.

Where to start with what's wrong with what meme says...

No, everyone doesn't get a roof over their head.

No, help is not available for all.

And no, Labour didn't "spend mindlessly"; it was hacking away at social spending long before the Tories got back in and enthusiastically took on the same mantle.

The boss class across the world is shamelessly using the bankers' recession to slash costs and boost their own profits, but they and their apologists in the media repeat the Thatcherite mantra "there is no alternative" often enough for large numbers of people to believe this blatant lie.

Candy Cupcake is right to point to the amount of tax evasion by big business - remember Vodafone alone had a £6 billion tax bill WRITTEN OFF, money that could and should have been used to help provide jobs, housing, education, and healthcare instead of boosting a global company's fat profits.

Don't buy branded clothing or food, don't have Sky tv and smartphones, and cancel your broadband. Stop drinking and smoking, sell your car. By doing this you can help stop supporting tax evading immoral corporations and most important of all don't vote for the politicians who allow them to do this - Conservative, Labour and Lib Dem.

meme, you are hopelessly ignorant. Nobody chooses 'the life of a vagrant' as you so nicely put it. People become homeless for all sorts of reasons, illness, addiction and poverty being the main examples, and these things are often beyond the homeless person's control. Hard working people are struggling to pay bills in this country and losing their homes is a distinct possibility. Those with dependent children and health problems should be helped by their local councils. Unfortunately single people with no children have a much harder time and, if they are deemed to have no significant health problems, the council is not obliged to help them. Do some research into poverty and homelessness. It might surprise you... or maybe you simply won't believe it because it does not fit with your rhetoric.

So Blytherspirit even if I agreed with all you say and i dont what's the answer to this problem?
I dont see people starving on the streets and we have very few homeless. **** I said even those vagrants have hostels to go to
What I am trying to point out is there is a level of poverty in UK which has no resemblance to the real povery that is sufferred in India etc
its all a level of degrees
It would be a perfect world if we all had the same but we dont and I still maintain we have probably the most sophisticated safety nets in the world for the worse off. What more can be done whenb there is no money?

Fit for medicals are a joke they only test people on a narrow band of conditions that make people unfit for work

But other conditions that employers and GP's deem to make people not fit for work are not counted by the government as good reasons

This is how the government works is to tell us that they are making life on benefits harder but the people who benefit from people getting benefits are private landlords companies paying minimum wage

If you are single you are at the bottom of the pile for any help from the state you can lose every thing if you lose your job as all the changes that have made to the benefits system would make it hard to be out of work for 2 months before the bailiffs knocking on your door

Try being a single mother of two and working full time for years. I pay all my own rent and all of my bills with no child maintenance from the father. Then one child goes to live with the father as he is allowed play COD all night long. as a result i have to hand over 15 per cent of my wages to him (inc 15 per cent of second childs tax credits) and now cannot afford to support the child still at home properly (as things were a struggle anyway) while the first child is being bought luxuries (bribed)

The child maintenance and family law system needs looking at too.
