Submission to Consultation on Working Family Payment
The Government is proposing to introducing a new Working Family Payment. EAPN Ireland’s submission to the consultation highlights how the payment can best achieve its goals of poverty reduction and making work pay. The submission emphasises that the new payment should be implemented alongside measures to address precarious work and ensure workers have a living wage and a decent wage. The new payment should also not make people worse off than they would be under current system of in-work welfare supports. Download the submission.
