Theresa May claims there are a ‘very small’ number of workers on zero-hours contracts despite numbers climbingThe Prime Minister appeared to falter when challenged on poor pay and working conditions
Theresa May slipped up when she claimed that only a “very small” group of workers were on zero-hours contracts despite numbers rising rapidly since 2010. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn used the first Prime Minister’s Questions after the summer recess to challenge Ms May on how “inflation was running ahead of people’s pay” as McDonald’s staff took strike action for the first time over their working conditions and zero-hours contracts.
Opposition MPs heckled when Ms May said these contracts could be “beneficial” to the “very small” group of workers, yet official figures suggest over 880,000 people were employed under these terms.
Mr Corbyn also said the Prime Minister had “gone back on her word” to crack down on executive pay packages by ensuring they were subject to strict annual votes by shareholders.
