The myth of zero hours contracts
I am sorry but I can't stand it anymore. There is a myth that zero hours contracts are bad. I worked most of my life on a zero hour contract it was called SELF EMPLOYED. I and millions like me had no contracts no job security no company pension no paid holidays. In fact I often went weeks without being paid! Did I moan or whinge no I carried on at times taking evening bar work to ease the lack of cash, after all one has to feed ones family. I know lots of people who work these contracts and employ people. These people they employ are paid and get holidays and have no worry about getting paid next week because the person employing them has mortgaged all he owns to ensure that they have their wages. I know . I have paid people and had no money available for food for my own family. We often lived out of the store cupboard on such occasions chin up and carried on. So to all of those Self employed out there who are proud to work ZERO HOURS CONTRACTS well done keep doing it because you are enabling those out there to moan about people who are paying their wages. No doubt those out there who expect someone else to take the risks or are employed by the state will disagree with me but I never moaned about my zero hour contract.
