What about ‘No sustained profit - No pay & bonus’ contracts for bosses?

In an interim report published last week, Parliament’s Scottish Affairs Committee says there has been an ‘alarming’ increase in the use of casual labour – who are in some cases not being paid the legal minimum wage - across the UK (and in Scotland in particular) and that Government should be using all the levers at its disposal, including legislation, to change this.

The Committee says the Government’s consultation on ‘zero hours contracts’ is too narrow:  it is focused on exclusivity & transparency, but the Committee says addressing those concerns will do little to help workers who are exploited by unscrupulous employers.
