Zero Hour Contracts – the shame of modern day economic slavery
Just as in previous centuries the wealthy were the cause of physical slavery so they are now the cause of economic slavery. On the pretense of competition and the necessity of these contracts some 700,000 workers are being exploited often by large multinational corporations who are also involved in serial tax avoidance. And where are our politicians to protect our workers from such abusive practices? On the other side of the fence of us the 99%. Just waiting for their handout from the same corporations that are exploiting the 99%. In the UK over the last decades their isn’t a single party and probably very few politicians who have done anything about reducing the wealth gap. And we can’t expect the next government of any party to be any different. What we need is the box on the ballot paper that says none of the above and for everyone to have to vote. If a large part of the population voted that the current holders of democracy were all rubbish then maybe we would have a chance to do something about it.
