The rise in zero hour contracts


The Office for National Statistics has reviewed the methodology it uses to produce estimates of the number of employees on zero-hours contracts. The result of these changes is to increase the most recent estimate (October-December 2012) to 250,000 employees.

Using the revised figures, we’ve put together two graphs showing the rise in zero hour contracts over recent years. As you can see, the number of people in employment on zero hour contracts has more than doubled in the past eight years.

    Now look at the graph from the ONS for pension debts.

    2005-2010, that went up by 3.67 trillion. TRILLION not billion.

    All hidden off the books.

    Labour’s dirty little secret. We’ve spent everyone’s pension money and now we can’t pay.
