Small Families Need to Earn Almost £40,000 to Live Comfortably

uk-incomeNew research out today suggests that a couple with two children will need to earn a minimum of £36,800 in order to have an acceptable standard of living.

The results, by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, found that earnings need to be at least a third more than they were four years ago due to the increase in living costs.

The figures were found from a number of focus groups and are thought to be due to rising costs in childcare and travel.
