An economy that works for young workers
15 July 2018
Soaring rent, unfair fares, low pay and insecure contracts. The economy isn’t working for young workers. Here’s how Labour would fix that…
A real living wage – meaning a pay rise for 116,000 people under 25 in Scotland.
Only Labour will take the action needed to end the Tories' economic failure and introduce a real Living Wage of £10 an hour. Share this ↓ pic.twitter.com/UPpx8FSKPj

A ban on zero hours contracts.
⏰ New figures published today outlining what young people do after they finish high school count zero-hours jobs as a 'positive destination’.
We don't think they are. That's why the next Labour government will call time on zero-hours contracts.

Taking public transport back into public ownership, delivering fairer fares for the many.
The East Coast Mainline is now back under public ownership.
It's time the rest of the rail network was also.
