Letter: Different town, same needs
4:29pm Wednesday 8th August 2012 in Opinion
I live in Barnoldswick and have been unemployed in the past. I have a job that pays £6.23 per hour and because of the job I do the goverment won’t let me have a second job - I have to have a certain amount of time off due to the law.
I have two mortgages, one to buy my house and the second was to bring my house up to standard of living. I could not get a grant to do this as I lived in Barlick but yet people in Nelson could get one.
The council said they were on low wages. Yes, so was I.
