UK workers protest over controversial 'zero hours' contracts
Issued on: Modified:
The UK is renowned for its flexible employment market, but the use of 'zero hours' contracts has come under scrutiny this summer for pushing workers too far. Such contracts offer no guarantee of work, no sick leave or paid holiday. Employees are left in a very precarious situation, never knowing if or when they will be called in to work - or if they'll be able to pay their bills.
