Herroit-Watt University is appealing to readers to help in a research project currently being conducted.
Dr. James Richards explains: “We would like to draw readers of the Brechin Advertiser to a research project we are conducting at Heriot-Watt University on the contemporary issue of having a job (or are self-employed), yet low pay keeping the individual or family within or close to the poverty line.
“We are looking to interview approximately 60 people from across Scotland facing such a predicament. To show our appreciation for taking part in our study participants will receive a £20 cash equivalent voucher.
“All details of our study can be found at the following web-address http://in-work-poverty-scotland.info/”
