How many times in life does someone vulnerable suffer because of this?
How many times have you been impacted negatively because of this?
How many more times must it happen before these errors are corrected?
We live in a wealthy country with inordinate amounts of expendable income yet in the UK 17% of UK children (which is 2.3 million!) live in poverty. 27% do once housing costs are paid. 2/3’s of these children live in households where one or BOTH parents work. 1.9 million pensioners are living in poverty too.
I won’t rant about statistics, we know how they can be fixed and let’s face it, there is a lot of “human error” here too.
I just wanted to go on record by saying that human error is not always human error. Most of the time it is a result of apathy, belligerence, slothfulness and cutting corners.
