David Cameron’s Cleaners
The prime minister of United Kingdom came up with an interesting idea in last few days. He suggested to cut off taxes of people who hire household services such as cleaning, gardening, babysitting etc.
This idea seems good as it allows women to be implemented in the companies and proceed their career. It is an unwritten law that household chores and taking care of children is mostly done by women, not their husbands. Cameron wants to see more women implemented in the upper echelons of business and obviously he thinks that tax breaks for hiring cleaners Wandsworth will do the trick. The question is “Would this work?” According to Sweden, where the idea is borrowed from, probably not. This will provide more women power for businesses but this is only if they have already been established in their careers. The other part of the women society will continue seeking for a job as usual and these tax breaks will not affect their budget at all.
Some say that this is a half-measure that should be considered very well. But hey, Cameron said that this is just an idea which will be examined before making any suggestion to the parliament. Implementing tax cuts for people, especially single moms, who hire household helpers will increase the number of women in businesses, which is the aim of the prime minister. Of course, it is not a feminist measure. Having more women in company boards makes them more stable, reduce the risk levels and corruption. And also, there is an undeniable proof that companies that have both men and women employees run better.
This idea also provides a solution for the unemployment as it will provide more than 5000 job positions. People will purchase more cleaning and household services and for that such companies will need more end of tenancy cleaning Wandsworth experts, gardeners and other type of employees. Looking at this point of view, it is a win-win situation.
On the other hand, tax cuts will really affect only women who already have established in their careers. Others will face some difficulties before getting to such a level. Which is the bad side of the idea. Still, after some consideration, there may a solution come up which will include all women in UK, not only the established ones.
