Need to tackle cy­cle of hard­ship

Harefield Gazette - - OPINION -

THE new re­search by the Joseph Rown­tree Foun­da­tion into the plum­met­ing in­come of fam­i­lies makes for alarm­ing read­ing.

De­spite liv­ing in one of the world’s rich­est coun­tries, the re­search re­veals that two in ev­ery five fam­i­lies are strug­gling on in­comes that do not cover a min­i­mum stan­dard of liv­ing.

That this is still hap­pen­ing in 2015 is some­thing we should all be con­cerned about.

The gap be­tween the money fam­i­lies have and the costs they need to cover is get­ting wider.
