Workers on zero-hours contracts earn nearly £300 a week less than permanent employees. This is the conclusion in a TUC-report. The trade union confederation based its report on unpublished data from the Office for National Statistics (ONS). Average weekly earnings for zero-hour workers are £188, compared with £479 for permanent staff. The ONS has estimated there are 1.4 million contracts with no guaranteed minimum hours. The publication of the report The Decent Jobs Deficit: The Human Cost of Zero-Hours Working and Casual Labour marked the beginning of the TUC’s Decent Jobs Week.
