Angela Rayner responds to Living Wage Foundation report

Angela Rayner MP, Labour’s Deputy Leader and Shadow Secretary of State for the Future of Work, commenting on Living Wage Foundation research on low-paid and insecure work, said:

“The scourge of insecure work and poverty wages that is blighting millions of lives is proof that our economic model is broken.

“A job should provide security, dignity and a proper wage that you can support your family on.

“We need a new deal for working people. Labour will deliver an immediate living wage of at least £10 an hour, end insecure work and zero-hours contracts by creating a single status of ‘worker’, and give all workers full rights from day one on the job so that everyone has the right to sick pay, the minimum wage, and holiday pay.”
