The average income in Britain is around £20,000 which is not enough for a family to live on. Employers knows this, but the lower the wages the higher their bonuses. Therefore, both parents have to work full time. Because parents are too exhausted to raise their children society has become ‘broken.’ This was the conclusion around the dinner table last night to the question of how can anyone live on the average salary. What a dangerous economic balance for a society to get itself into!
