Shop workers could be better off on the dole because of tax credit changes brought in by the Tory government.

Couples earning less than £18,000 a year must increase their working hours from a minimum of 16 hours a week to 24 hours. If they don’t they will lose their working tax credit of over £70 a week.

One in five GMB members believed the changes would force them on to the dole because work would not be worthwhile.
