    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

    Maybe your mum can think about getting a job too?

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