  1. Hi honeybee13, thanks for your help, I will use the online calculator and I will let you know how I get on. also thanks, me to as I hope this job last as I hope I don't have to go on that Universal Credit again until they sort the current mess out as it's awful at the moment.
  2. Hey guys, just after some advice. After nearly a year on Universal Credit, I finally got a job as I started working for Warburtons in Burnley through this agency called (The Best Connection) and I started on Tuesday (December 6) and my shifts are Tuesday to Friday, 9am - 8pm and my wage is £7.20 an hour and I get paid every Friday. Just wondering if you could answer these questions for me: 1. Going from my wage, will I get any help towards my rent or council tax? 2. If the work doesn't last and the worst comes to the worst and I will have to start claiming Universal Credit again, how
  3. Hello, I just like to let you all know that I have been in contact with Burnley Express on Thursday (last week) with the treatment I have currently receiving with Job Centre regarding my gay slogan t-shirt (NOBODY KNOWS I'M GAY) and a reporter took a picture of me in my gay t-shirt outside Job Centre on Thursday and he said I will be in Tuesday's paper which is tomorrow and my brother just told me that it's in the shops now and I am on the front cover and the headline is: Gay slogan t-shirt not accepted by Job Centre. The reporter couldn't believe it when I told him, he also said
  4. Hi Honeybee13, The steps I have taken so far are the following: 1. On 5th of Feburary I attended my Job Centre appointment as normal and while I was attending that appointment, my advisor said this in her own words: Right, do you remember another advisor discussed about that t-shirt you wearing, well it's not suitable while attending Job Centre appointments, you need to change it asap, I am going to make a note on your claim that to wear appropriately clothing, if you wear that t-shirt in future appointments then I will have no choice but to put it to a decision maker for a possibl
  5. SabreSheep, I agree, even my mates saying the same thing you said that if my t-shirt didn't have the word gay on my t-shirt then Job Centre advisors wouldn't have a problem, all my mates saying I should be able to wear what I want, they even said this is homophobic. What if my t-shirt says the following: (NOBODY KNOWS I'M A MILLIONAIRE) bet they wouldn't mind my t-shirt then, it's pathetic this!
  6. Thanks for that link Richard, I will ring them tomorrow when it opens to see if they can give me some advice
  7. Ewww, you won't see me wearing women's clothes lol, not into that thing!
  8. Antone, I agree, never people get jobs in Job Centre, most of the advisors these days don't help you, they just find an excuse to stop people's money.
  9. id6052, Nah, it's fine, I wear the same slogan because if I don't wear it then no one will know, you can't tell if I am gay because I am 100% straight acting (sorry, if that's saying annoys you) but it's true. I also wear it because I am proud of my sexuality, I got nothing to be ashamed about.
  10. Id6052, Thanks, no I didn't wear my t-shirt while I was working at Boohoo, we had uniform provided, Boohoo is a big warehouse involves Picking garments, packing, house keeping. I was scanning items with a scanner.
  11. No, no mention of clothing it just states what I need to do to look for work like websites, hand CVs out, also it states if get sanction then it shows how many days etc.
  12. No, that's not true, I worked for Boohoo on 25 November 2014 - 13 January 2015 and I got that job by myself, so my t-shirt has got nothing to do with barriers.
  13. Id6052, I 100% agree with you on your post, if an interview is taking place that day when some claimants are signing on and he/she is wearing dirty clothes, trackies, trainers, t-shirts with cartoons on, football, Batmat etc then them are not suitable for a Job Interview so why just me getting picked on with my t-shirt while anyone else can wear all sorts of different t-shirts. This is the bit I am confused!
  14. id6052 Sorry, meant to say it's a threat of a sanction, not my response to my complaint.
