Making Ends Meet?

Are you employed on a casualised contract in the Further or Higher Education sector?

When working on a fixed-term, temporary, variable hours, hourly paid, zero hours or agency contract, it can be difficult to make ends meet. We know many people have to combine more than one contract and still struggle.

We are gathering information on income levels, hours worked, access to benefits and tax credits and the struggle to make ends meet for casualised staff — we are launching this in support of the TUC Decent Jobs Week (15-21 December).

Please fill out this survey before Thursday 11th December — it’s designed to shed light on how working on casualised contracts can lead to people working long hours at poor pay rates, unable to balance work and life, needing to access tax credits and benefits but often struggling to do so.

It should take no more than  around 10 minutes to complete — please take part and share!
