Oh yes. The gig economy has created a lot of zero hours contracts. Apparently people like these - a myth I suggest ?. I have yet to meet someone who likes this. For flexibility read insecurity. But the punters are too greedy to see that what goes round comes round. You save on some thing you buy and then have to pay more in welfare for the people left behind. Mind you if you go too far down the socialist route you breed complacency. Somewhere in the middle is the middle ground - but that is boring !.Politicians of all colours have utterly failed to deal with rate revaluation any more than they have with social care reform or, except in a very piecemeal way, pensions reform. The situation now is even more ludicrous while Amazon (say) can supply you with goods that may be in your local shop, but utterly unobtainable from them, and which of those potential suppliers will be paying more tax into government coffers, or providing employment for local workers with reasonable conditions of employment?
