I recently attended a talk on Economic Justice. It seems the current financial system besides many positive contributions to our society is not properly working impacting the lives of hard working population.
One issue for example was misselling of PPI and financial institutions’ social accountability.
Other issues are workers rights and zero hours contracts. Under the current rules, for example, an employer can cancel a job with only 24 hours notice but can still require the employee to stay on call. The proposed changes to the government are that each employee would be guaranteed a minimum number of hours of work to ensure employees will receive sufficient monthly income to make ends meet.
