Being furloughed on my small part time wage

Being furloughed on my small part time wage

This is an example - before running this consultation, committees at the Parliament have heard this kind of feedback. 'Not only have I lost out on money but also valuable work experience which may impact my future.'


Students who normally pick up full time jobs/ overtime over the summer are unable to do this. As a young adult who is trying to be financially independent this is now impossible for me and I have had to go back to relying on my parents for support for rent etc. I am lucky my parents are able to support me financially but there will be huge numbers of students who will not have this luxury and are seriously struggling. Universities are offering very little/ no support for this.
