David and Jean live in a four-bedroom house with their 17-year old son. They would like to move, but there are no two-bedroom homes in the area to move to. Bedroom tax means they now need to find an extra £96 per month in rent. David works part-time at the nearby Co-op and Jean works as a dinner lady. They have not been able to increase their hours despite requesting to do so. David says, “That was the money we used for gas and electricity,” so now they only heat the front room. Even with their ten per cent staff discount, Coop is too expensive for them to shop at now. David says, “How are we going to pay our bills? We have to find the money somehow because if we can’t, we’ll be threatened with the courts.” He says the process has made him feel like jumping under a bus.
