Unfortunately, there's a lot of families,

0:00:170:00:20

in particular younger families, who are struggling.

0:00:200:00:23

For a considerable period of time I was a single parent

0:00:240:00:27

and you have to manage and you have to sort of budget,

0:00:270:00:31

you have to count the pennies and you have to make

0:00:310:00:34

decisions about what becomes a luxury as opposed to a necessity.

0:00:340:00:39

Speaking to a lot of working parents, they are facing redundancy,

0:00:390:00:43

job insecurity, and some working women are making really tough decisions.

0:00:430:00:48

We're taking Joseph to school. His school is about eight miles away.

0:01:040:01:08

We rely on decent priced fuel to enable us

0:01:090:01:14

to carry out basic everyday tasks, especially taking your child

0:01:140:01:17

to school, where you want to educate them, to make sure they get

0:01:170:01:23

the best start in life possible.

0:01:230:01:25

If you're struggling to get them there in the first place,

0:01:250:01:29

that has a huge impact on working families.

0:01:290:01:32

He's lucky, as most children in Wales are,

0:01:430:01:46

in that they benefit from free breakfast.

0:01:460:01:49

The Welsh Government's commitment to this means that working families

0:01:490:01:54

can stay in work rather than make a stark choice of having to give up their job,

0:01:540:01:58

simply because they can't afford to look after their children.

0:01:580:02:02

I feel that the other parties are not doing enough.

0:02:040:02:07

People are in absolute despair at this moment in time in Wales -

0:02:070:02:10

decent, honest working people who make a valid contribution to our economy.

0:02:100:02:14

Right now, because of the austerity cuts

0:02:140:02:16

and the way in which central government is operating,

0:02:160:02:19

I am worried about Joseph's future.

0:02:190:02:22

However, with Welsh Labour and their policies around education

0:02:220:02:26

and their policies around challenging youth unemployment,

0:02:260:02:30

around skills for life, then I know they are going

0:02:300:02:33

to help make a difference to Joseph's life for the future.
