Standing Up For The Self-Employed

The Federation of Small Business has rightly questioned why the self-employed have been excluded from the commitment to pay 80% of earnings:

"It cannot be right that an employee currently earning £25,000 a year could access £20,000 per annum through the new job retention scheme, while someone who's self-employed earning the same sum might only access around £5,000 worth of support."

Well said, FSB - let's hope the Government is listening.
