Support for Agency Workers during the Coronavirus shutdown

Support for Agency Workers during the Coronavirus shutdown

Financially support agency workers who have no work because of firms being shut down due to the coronavirus.

Why is this important?

There are thousands of agency workers, such as myself, who would normally have work but have little or no work because the firms they usually work for have closed down.

The Government has offered to pay up to 80% of the wages for employed people and will be announcing help for the self-employed but, so far, there has been no mention of the thousands of agency workers.

During the current crisis we have no income if we do not work and without firms being open for business there is no demand for workers.

We still have mouths to feed and bills to pay, just like the rest of society. We need the same level of support in order to make ends meet.

Please send a clear message to the Government that they must support agency workers at this time of national crisis.

Thank you.
