33-33-year old Anna works 21 hours per week as a claims processor at a benefits processing centre. She earns £10K, and is joining a one-day strike action. Under new working conditions, she will need to find an extra £25 per month in pension contributions and, if she retires at 60, will be an estimated £37,800 worse off. A single mother with two children, she says, “£25 doesn’t sound very much, but every penny counts. Whatever money I have left after the bills, I split between food, clothes and petrol. If the kids need a pair of shoes, I won’t go food shopping that week, I’ll make do with what there is.”
