The Trades Union Congress has asserted that people on zero-hour contracts are more than twice as likely to work night shifts and are paid a third less an hour than other workers.

Julian Pilling, CEO of Solutio UK, said: “There is no data revealing how many workers actually want out. Headlines are being created, but the government has set out its current position, which is a more balanced view of the zero-hours labour market.”
