UK unemployment rate

Recommended Posts

 

 

The way I see it is if you are one of those who don't like how zero hour contracts work then look for a permanent job, unless you are almost unemployable there are jobs out there. Given the numbers on zero hour contracts it's hardly going to drag down the standard of living as 97% of working people DON'T work zero hours.
200 applicants for a tesco stacking job says otherwise.

Sadly, those sorts of jobs are often 2nd jobs for some or attract students. Applications for such jobs are not necessarily indicative of unemployment.

The vast majority don't want zero hour contracts, they cannot get a mortgage and do not know if they have enough money to last the the week. I know as I decide whether to send them home after an hour at work as it is a quiet shift, I try to keep them on doing odd jobs but most managers dont care and send them home.

 

The vast majority, ok :)

A 2013 study by the CIPD found that 47% of workers on zero hour contracts were "very satisfied" or "satisfied" with their deal, with 72% believing they had choice over the hours they worked.

Your comments around whether women deserve to be treated equally, and now judging me because i type with my thumbs without knowing my disability background.

 

I am starting to see what type of person you might be...

The UK unemployment rate currently stands at just 4.7%, the lowest in 40 years.
is that because of all the immigration which is also at a record high?

Is she on a zero hour contract? Or is she on a permanent part time contract I wonder.

 

Is she entitled annual leave?

Is she entitled carer's leave?

Is she entitled sick leave?

Has she been offered a work place pension?

 

...

my wife is on zero hours. She has strongly resisted attempts to get her on a permanent contract.
