Exploitative zero hours contracts make it harder for families to make ends meet – Abrahams

Debbie Abrahams MP,
Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, commented on the Resolution Foundation’s
analysis of zero hours contracts saying;

“This analysis showing
nearly one million workers on zero hours contracts confirms unprecedented
levels of insecurity among working people.

“With real wages set to
be lower in 2021 than they were in 2008, deep Tory cuts to Universal Credit and
a punitive sanctions regime, it is increasingly difficult for families to make
ends meet.

“The next Labour
government will implement a real Living Wage, ban exploitative zero hours
contracts and reverse pernicious cuts to working people.”
