Families Discrimination


Two-parent families are being 'brutally discriminated' against by the Government's strategy to tackle child poverty, according to a report by a Labour MP, Frank Field.
A two-parent family on minimum wage would have to work 116 hours a week to earn the same as a single mother working just 16 hours a week, it says.

Well i suppose it is unfair..but i see a lot of single moms struggling to raise their children as Catholics. i wouldn't want to take money off them....

Sorry to be critical...but your picture shows the typical 2 parent 2 kids preferably 1 girl one boy...hardly the typical Catholic family (or second thoughts maybe it is!)
