    Hey,

    I have applied to work at maccy d's and have an interview tomorrow(jinkies!). My mum seems convinced that the government will take money from her in benefits or housing, however i have seen conflicting statements. I am currently in college studying level 3 computing which is a 2 year course.

    I'm not 100% on how it works but you're under 18 so it still should be fine? Does she have to report how many people are working living in her household? I would have assumed that was amount of adults working because you wont be making an amazing amount

    Then why is she on benefits. Don't have children if you can't afford them
