PAY CARERS A MINIMUM OF UNEMPLOYED BENEFITS AND DEFINE THEM AS EMPLOYED

Increase carers allowance to the same level as what unemployed 
receive and class carers as employed.

Why is this important?

Carers are classed as unemployed yet they get payed less than current unemployed levels. Carers work 24/7 without recognition, and save the Government over £90billion a year. Carers at a minimum, need to receive the same money as the unemployed and refine their roles as employed with all rights. Care payments are also taxable so they should be given the same rights as anyone that is working and the same support regardless of their ability to have another Job along with being a care giver. For many caring for someone that has a disability is a 24/7 Job with no holiday pay and no other way of gaining an income
