Universal Credit Making Claimants Turn To Sex Work- And Consider Suicide

Same Difference

In the last week, two very different, very sad, very negative, effects of Universal Credit have had media coverage.

We thought we would link to both reports in one place.

  • Firstly, on Thursday, the Guardian reported a study which found that Universal Credit increases the risk of suicide among claimants.

  • Secondly, today, the BBC reports that Universal Credit is forcing women to turn to sex work.

Could it get any worse, readers? We don’t think so.
