Politicians, out of touch? Never!
But wait, here comes work and pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith with something to say about zero-hours contracts.
He told Sky News:
Zero-hour contracts are badly named – I don’t know whoever came up with that idea, they should be named the flexible hours contracts.
The former Tory leader went on to claim that zero-hour contracts actually helped people maintain a healthy "work-life balance", despite prime minister David Cameron admitting he could not live on one.
Labour has said it will legislate for workers on zero-hour contracts - working full-time hours - to ask for a permanent contract after three months.
TUC general secretary Frances O'Grady commented: “If you put lipstick on a pig, it is still a pig. But as ‘zero-hours contracts’ is a bit of a mouthful, perhaps we could call them ‘IDS jobs’ in the future.”
