Abolish zero hours contracts

Petition Details

The Taylor Report recognised they are not ideal for many staff and recommended reform - this will not work! They need to be abolished. Many workers are unable to benefit from employment rights as they lack of hours inhibits their earning capacity. This can impact mental and physical health.
