I was told yesterday that my job isnt looking very secure anymore. My dad who also works for the company got sacked on friday, and i'll find out this week whether my job is safe or not. After being told that, my first reaction other than crying my eyes out for hours was how the heck am i supposed to pay for things, as at the moment after tax and NI i come home with just under £1600 and at pretty much £1500 goes on paying for the house and more importantly my debt! I know that if i do lose my job my smp will be paid directly from hmrc, but am i entitled to anything else? Like can i claim job seekers or something, as theres no way i can survive on £550, and work were going to top my wages up if i was still working for them. Its happened at a really crap time as im due to start my maternity leave on wednesday. I'm looking for other jobs now, but i was very lucky to get this one and i know for a fact that i'll not get another that pays the same. I'll also have child care costs to factor into things, which ive heard can be £35 a day! i think ive gone a bit off track sorry.
