Survive on £94 a week? Some self employed people are already on benefits. Misunderstood and much maligned. Unsupported and treated like a greedy kid. We are often at odds with the media, the nation and even our friends. We are a hotch potch of people.
Many don’t trust the government to support us and so hang onto money for rainy days for which no one else will provide an umbrella. We never feel secure. We try to do our best.
No self employed people were surprised when employees were supported through furloughing and nothing was said about the self employed.
No self employed people were surprised when we were told to stop trading without any thought about how we might feed ourselves.
But we can come together and we can find support. Let’s stay together!
