The Tories claim to support working people – nothing could be further than the truth.
In reality they are overseeing workers low pay and falling wages, conditions are getting worse, and more people are being forced onto zero hour contracts.
Working people’s wages are 10% lower than they were in 2007 in real terms, 1 in 5 employees are stuck in low paid work and nearly six million people are in jobs that pay less than the living wage.and more people are being forced onto zero hour contracts.
There are currently 800,000 people employed on zero hour contracts – that’s an increase of 100,000 in just a year.
Unscrupulous and exploitative business practices, such as those recently revealed at Sports Direct and BHS, are going unchecked.
Under the Tories; many working people are facing:
- Low Pay
- Poor working conditions
- Pension rights under threat
- Wage freezes
- Temporary contracts
- Irregular hours
Only Labour will stand up for working people and build a fairer economy. Labour will raise the minimum wage, take action to put an end to rogue employers and irresponsible business practices, tackle insecure work and ensure all employees have access to justice.
