Re: Another attack on the free market

I know several people who have to juggle several zero hours contracts just to get enough weekly income to live on: Most of the zero hours contracts do not guarantee you a set amount of hours / set days you will be working, so hours on offer can vary massively each week.

They would love one job with guaranteed hours and income (plus it would save them a lot in extra commute time, when you are doing aseveral hours here and there an awful lot of time (and money) eaten up in commuting).

Most people in zero hours contracts are not there by choice, just in those contracts because companies are using them to keep their costs down and screw the workers.
