The life of a lowly worker

"It would be nice not to have to worry about money but it is always on my mind"..."I don't really go out a lot."

"I enjoy my job, but I am unsure how long I can afford to continue in it."

Monthly budget:

Rent £270
Car £85
Council tax £85
Mobile phone £15
Home phone £25
Food £80
Credit card £100
Going out £80
Savings £100
Other (clothes, toiletries etc.) £160
Total £1000
Take home pay £1000

It'd do the political elite a lot of good to live on the average wage in Wales, to realise that people are living on the never never.
The added expense of an MOT on the car or an unexpected crisis (let alone losing your job) can tip people into a cycle of debt.
Thos with their own homes have gambled on rising house prices - oops. Those in rented accommodation are trapped in a high rent nightmare.
So when you hear MPs moan about needing an extra 40k to cover their expenses, it makes your reach for your gun.
