JEREMY CORBYN has pledged to stand up for ‘exploited’ and ‘ripped off’ workers while calling out companies with the ‘worst’ records.
The Labour leader said he will take on the ‘bad bosses’ as he unveiled what he believes to be the biggest expansion of workers’ rights in Britain’s history. The party criticised Amazon, Sports Direct, outsourcing giant ISS, Asda and Uber over their employment practices.
‘We’ll call time on insecure and unsafe work that leaves people without the rights and dignity they deserve, and on discrimination in the workplace that leaves women vulnerable to harassment and unequal pay,’ said Mr Corbyn.
Yesterday, Mr Corbyn met cleaners and catering staff in London who have organised themselves against employers. The party has already made pledges of a £10 minimum wage for all, a ban on zero-hours contracts and a requirement for paid breaks, but highlighted them as part of its work manifesto.
Amazon and Asda rejected Labour’s claims.
