Yesterday the Government tried to sneak out their long overdue response to the Taylor review. They decided to launch four consultations and only merely ‘considering’ proposals is just not good enough. Like so much from this Government, their response is just more words, with no real action to improve the lives of the millions of people in insecure work. They have failure to strengthen workers’ rights is having a real impact on people’s lives.
The next Labour government will transform the lives of workers by ensuring equal rights from day one, banning zero-hours contracts, introducing a real living wage of at least £10 per hour by 2020 and banning unpaid internships.
