        This is inspired by commentary around the Welfare Reform debate. If people are caring for dependents on very little money, it places an extra burden on them if their caring roles are not recognised as vaild and they are instead pushed towards paid work. It is a ludicrous situation where a mother is pressured into going out to work, but then has to spend the majority of her earned income on paid-for child care.
