Rebecca Long Bailey responds to Government plans to tackle the pay gap between bosses and workers

Rebecca Long Bailey, Shadow Business, Industrial Strategy and Energy Secretary, responding to Government plans to tackle the pay gap between bosses and workers, said:

“The Tories have missed the mark again, reannouncing half-baked, rehashed policies that do nothing to tackle the entrenched inequality that’s crippling our society.

“This won’t end staggering pay disparity or help hard-up workers at the bottom of the chain. Theresa May and her Government are too weak and unwilling to take on big bosses and act in favour of ordinary workers.

“Labour will stand up to the corporate elite by making businesses act in the best interest of their employees and roll out maximum pay ratios in public sector companies and contracts.”
