Resource description

Rising inflation and the freezing and cutting of benefits for those in work mean that households are more squeezed than they were only a year ago – in fact wages need to have risen by 24 per cent for a family to reach the same standard of living as in 2010. Chris Goulden writes that this pressure on family budgets is likely to continue, and may even get worse.
