Re:Hiring someone Part-time - will benefits get in the way?
Having just spent 4 weeks on the dole, I wouldn't have even considered 10 hours a week, as dole pays your rent and council tax too. To be honest, I'm almost better off on benefits than working 48 hours a week to be honest. If I had kids, this would definately be the case.
Depending on where the hours are in the week, might suit someone like a doorman who only works weekends/evening or something? But then if it goes full-time you're back at square one.
If it is 2 hours p/d over 5 days, nobody will be interest (IMO).
I would have done cleaning or anything, but there was nothing offering 35+ hours a week in that role.
