Millions of people in the UK are trapped in lowpaid, insecure jobs. There are more than 1.4 million zero-hours contracts in use, offering no steady work. Others, such as agency and casual workers, lose out on important rights and benefits.
The recovery is creating new jobs but many are of poor quality. As a result, more and more people struggle to pay their rent, mortgage and heat their homes. Women and young workers are particularly affected.
From 15 to 21 December, the TUC is organising Decent Jobs Week, a series of events across England and Wales that will raise awareness about Britain’s jobs’ crisis.
Find out what is happening in your area and join the campaign for decent jobs, fairly paid.
