(and a bit drunk/shocked).
What are my options (until/if I get a full time job)? Turns out I get paid a lot less from my part-time job than I thought (I suspect there might be an error on my payslip because there is no way I worked that few hours last month, and for some reason we’ve/I’ve had my payment cut from £8.20 an hour to £7.50). I’ve just found out I got paid a stupidly low amount last month compared to the months before, to the point that I basically won’t cope next month. Can I apply for some sort of benefits if I’m earning below a certain amount (given that I work part-time)? If so can it be backdated? Turns out I’m a bit screwed.
Seriously tempted to give up my job (which I hate anyway) and go on the dole for the meantime, as I would probably get 3 times the amount I get now. But is that a sensible idea? Would it look bad on my CV?
