Employment figures hide working poverty and job insecurity

Margaret Greenwood MP, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, commenting on this morning’s employment figures, said:

“Today’s figures hide the reality that, under the Conservatives, more working families are living in poverty and more people are stuck in insecure jobs.

“The next Labour Government will make tackling the crisis of in-work poverty and insecure work a priority.

“We will ban zero-hour contracts, end the public sector pay squeeze and introduce a Real Living Wage of at least £10 an hour by 2020.”
