I livestream fitness classes across the internet and I target mothers.
Many couples in the UK cannot afford to have more children. When you go on maternity leave your income halves. Minimum wage is £7.83 per hour for those over 25. Let’s assume you work for 40 hours per week. That equates to £313.20 per week. After tax and national insurance that works out at £274.38.
Childcare per child is £45 per child per day. Assuming you work for 5 days that works out at £225 per week. Hence a mother who returned to work would take home £274.38-£225= £49.38 per week.
That works out at £1.23 per hour over a 40 hour week.
Many people are on zero hour contracts so they don’t know one week to the next if they have work. Inflation is 3%. Wage rises if you are lucky are 1%. Hence your wages are worth less and less. Hence many people cannot afford to have kids.
Worse still many people can’t afford to put anything into a private pension. So they retire on the state pension of £113 per week- around 40% of what they were struggling to live on to start with. Hence so many pensioners work in supermarkets.
So what is the answer? Multiple sources of income.
I am a fitness trainer and I get all my ladies on at least 3 legal sources of income on top of their wage.
