Labour Wage-Slave Hypocrisy

Many graduates are desperate to break into politics – sadly this exposes them to exploitation by unscrupulous employers who will take advantage of their desire to get political experience of any kind. Have no fear, Guido learns from the Labour Party party website that

“Labour has announced a new drive to crack down on rogue employers who abuse vulnerable workers… The crack down will be overseen by a new Fair Employment Enforcement Board which will co-ordinate the work… by using a single telephone helpline number for vulnerable workers to report abuses the agencies will be able to better share the vital information necessary to catch rogue employers..

Labour’s Employment Relations Minister Pat McFadden said:

“We want to prevent unscrupulous employers who undercut honest competition and prey on people who are fearful or so desperate to earn a living that they are open to exploitation.”

Guido has just had a quick check of some job advertising and found a number of unscrupulous employers preying on desperately ambitious young workers keen to break into politics:

Work for no pay for Claire Curtis-Thomas MP.
Work for no pay for Fabian Society.
Work for no pay for Labour Party (North Regional Office).
Work for no pay for Diane Abbott MP.
Work for no pay for Barbara Follett MP.
Work for no pay for Andy Slaughter MP.

What is the number on which to report these unscrupulous employers?

UPDATE : MPs get a staffing allowance of £100, 205. Claire Curtis Thomas, don’t forget, is “Britain’s most expensive MP” racking up costs of over £170,000 a year.

Quote of the Day

Tory MP Nick Boles says what everyone thinks…

“There is a timidity and lack of ambition about Mrs May’s Government which means it constantly disappoints. Time to raise your game, Prime Minister.”
