    The whole idea of Universal Credit is a complete disaster for the welfare system. It's supposed to help by combining benefits but it just makes the whole amount you get worse so it seems. Luckily I don't claim UC as I'm a carer for my parents so I claim carers allowance which hasn't been combined into UC yet. Yes, the way UC works does make taking low paid part-time work a pay cut. The whole benefits system does need a change and overhauling

      In principle it sounds like a good idea, but in practice it really isn't. I hope your carers allowance remains unaffected.
