Call for more cash for home workers.

PEOPLE who work from home might not receive any benefits from the increase in the minimum wage.

Although the wage increases by 40p per hour for workers on October 1, the National Group on Homeworking has highlighted the plight of people who work from home for below the minimum wage.

A recent report called Getting What's Rightfully Theirs, published by the NGH, shows that despite government legislation many continue to earn below the minimum wage.

The average homeworker is a woman aged between 30 and 39 years and is responsible for children of school age or younger.

And research has shown that she normally works for at least 20 hours per week.
