Precious is a student nurse and works weekend shifts as a healthcare assistant. She relies on the bus to get to and from her home several miles away. Council cuts mean that her bus will cease to run in the evenings or on Sundays. Precious says, “It will have a huge impact on people who have to work shifts.” She will be left having to take taxis each way. At a cost of almost £20 per shift, that is a significant part of what she earns.
