Comment on Why EMA was Important to Children in Poverty by Catherine.
I am in my final year of A levels and a vast number of my friends get EMA, but, although I feel that it is a brilliant scheme, there is issues with the way it is calculated. It doesn’t take into consideration the number of people in your house nor the outgoings like food and electricity, all the necessary things a family needs. They also do not think about if the child works. They shouldn’t scrap the program but maybe reform it so it is fair to all.
