One of the first 100 to sign Labour's Letter on Zero Hours

You are here: Home / Blog / Politics / One of the first 100 to sign Labour's Letter on Zero Hours

Labour Letter in reply to the Businessmen and women's letter in the Telegraph yesterday; many of which do not pay their taxes here in the UK or their businesses do not.

I was one of the 100 signatures.

A letter from businesses asking the government for tax cuts is getting a lot of publicity today.

100 working people from all walks of life, many of them on zero-hours contracts, have signed the open letter below to make sure the voices of working people are heard in this election. You can read the letter below.

Will you stand with them and add your name to the letter too?

Sign the letter: 

"We all care about Britain's economy and we all have a stake in the future.

We are all working people. Some of us run businesses, large and small. Some of us used to work on zero-hours contracts, some of us still do.

We come from all walks of life, this is what Britain looks like.

We believe that the fundamental choice at this election is: who does this country work for? Does it work only for those at the very top or does it work for working people - those trying to make ends meet, working in British businesses across the country to create wealth and support their families?

A symbol of the failure of this Government's economic plan is the proliferation of zero-hours contracts which has helped fuel the low wage, low skill economy that is letting down working people and letting down Britain.

Britain only succeeds when working people succeed.

We need a better plan for prosperity. We need a better plan and a better future. We need a Labour Government to put working people first.

Yours faithfully

Derek Wyatt
