Margaret Greenwood responds to ONS Labour Market statistics

Margaret Greenwood MP, Labour’s Shadow Work and Pensions Secretary, responding to the latest ONS Labour Market stats, said:

“It is shocking that there are more people on zero-hour contracts in the UK than ever before. That means more people than ever having to live from week to week with no idea what hours they will work or whether they will be able to feed their children or pay their rent.

“The government must make tackling insecure work and low pay a priority by banning zero-hour contracts and providing a real living wage of at least £10 per hour for all workers aged 16 and over.”
