A new deal for working people
Labour believes everyone, wherever they are in the country, should be able to get a good job that gives them a source of pride, security and dignity. Labour would make Britain work for working people.
1. Security at work
3.6 million people are in insecure work. This means they can’t plan for the future. Labour would give workers full protections from day one on the job, and we’d strengthen trade unions.
We’d also ban fire and rehire and give people the right to work flexibly.
2. Quality jobs
One in six working families live in poverty in the UK. This isn’t right. Labour would support British businesses so we buy, make and sell more in Britain. This would help to create well-paid, green jobs in the industries of the future.
3. A fairer economy
Your high street businesses pay their fair share of taxes in the UK but some big, global businesses, like Amazon, don’t. Our British businesses are being undercut and losing out.
Labour would level the playing field and give our businesses the boost they need to create good jobs locally.
4. Opportunity for all
Too many people can’t get the training or opportunities they deserve. We’d deliver a jobs-promise for young people with a guarantee of quality education, training or employment.
5. Work that pays
People should be able to raise a family on their wages, not struggle to make ends meet. Labour would introduce a real living wage of at least £10 an hour.
