    Don't want or need a job! I gave up after having my first baby, went on to have two more (my eldest is almost 4 and has just started nursery for half days). Once they are all in school I may think about getting a job.

    I AM!! I don't need a job, nor want one. Hubby has a good job and works longer hours than I'm happy with, but everything is ok financially. Touch wood!

    Not for me, last bit of clothing I bought for myself was maternity wear. Baby is now 18 months. Hence why this treat is a real treat for me!

    thats nowt! My mate gets £800 working tax credit every month and has done ever since he went back to work 6 months ago. He earns £1000 a week anyway but hes called them up 3 times now and they say the calculation is right so hes just saving it all now lol

    he also gets £40 per week top up for going back to work after being on long term unemployment benefit!

    I've also asked the mods to look at this thread,why people have to be nasty is beyond me.

    Think certain members should back off. Do you really think with the recent spending review that there's going to be a job for all ?

    One less in the job market makes it fractionally easier for someone else to get a job.

    Enjoy the rebate, it's yours as a result of loaning the government some of your previously hard earned cash.
