    Len McCluskey getting delusional

    Thinks he's Gandhi and Mandela

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...s-Red-Len.html

    He's changing his first names to Mahatma Nelson. Take your shoes off now Len.

    How striking that will be.

    The twin inhumanities of real poverty and inequality perpetuated by a rotten to the core neo-liberal project needs protesting against.

    Len McCluskey, I salute you! A fair wage for a fair day's pay is not too much to ask for in 2017 - is it!

    Yes, let's all go out on strike for weeks on end to try to make a point. Let's lose more money because we won't get paid whilst we are on strike and could risk losing our jobs.
    Guess who will still be getting paid and in no danger of losing his job whilst the proletariat adhere to his wishes.
    Thank goodness I do not have to follow his diktat!

    McCluskey doesn't give a FF about a fair day's pay, he just wants to bring the government down. If this charlatan really cared about the low paid, the semi-skilled and unskilled workers in the UK then why did he campaign alongside the Tories, the CBI, big business, the banks and the IMF to keep us in the EU ? It's the EU's free movement policy which depresses the wages and job opportunities of the poorest in our society, FFS why do you think the Tories wanted us to stay in ? Does McCluskey care, does he f**k, ask a genuine socialist like Dennis Skinner about the EU, he knows what it's done to the lowest paid.

    McCluskey's a c**t.

    Salary over 140k, I hear. Plus a house loan of 400k and staying in top hotels. All pigs are equal, but some are more equal than others.

    On the other hand, we allow people to work on zero hour contracts on remuneration which is less than half the minimum wage...

    Do you understand these. BT It isn't all bad as many seem to think.

    Zero hours contracts suit some workers and allow them to work for more than one employer or not work if they don't want eg mums with children.

    Here's ACAS take on them - miinimum wages apply by the way. http://m.acas.org.uk/index.aspx?articleid=4468

    Key points:

    Zero hours contracts normally mean there is no obligation for employers to offer work, or for workers to accept it.

    Most zero hours contracts will give staff 'worker' employment status.

    Zero hours workers have the same employment rights as regular workers, although they may have breaks in their contracts, which affect rights that accrue over time.

    Zero hours workers are entitled to annual leave, the National Minimum Wage and National Living Wage and pay for work-related travel in the same way as regular workers.
    Protection is given for those on Zero Hours Contracts from an exclusivity clause.

    When are zero hours contracts used?

    Zero hours contracts can be used to provide a flexible workforce to meet a temporary or changeable need for staff. Examples may include a need for workers to cover:

    unexpected or last-minute events (e.g. a restaurant needs extra staff to cater for a wedding party that just had their original venue cancel on them)
    temporary staff shortages (e.g. an office loses an essential specialist worker for a few weeks due to bereavement)
    on-call/bank work (e.g. one of the clients of a care-worker company requires extra care for a short period of time).
    It is important for employers to actively monitor their need for zero hours contracts. In many cases, it may be more effective or appropriate to make use of agency workers, or recruit staff on fixed-term contracts - or it may turn out that the need is permanent and therefore a permanent member of staff can be recruited.

    Considerations for the employer

    Easily accessed pool of staff to assist when demand arises
    No ongoing requirement to provide guaranteed levels of work for staff
    Can be cheaper alternative to agency fees

    Considerations for the worker
    Provides flexible employment on same basic terms as most workers
    No on-going requirement to accept offers of work and no consequences
    Gives employment experience and skills
