Labour's Miliband has promised to increase unemployment in Britain and raise the cost of the weekly shop if Labour is elected. Or at least he's promised to end 'zero hours' contracts, which is the same thing. Labour market flexibility such as we have in the UK allows more people to share more equally in the 'work pool', lets firms keep factor costs down as they can vary their inputs relative to fluctuations in sales and overall creates a leaner, more efficient economy. It also helps get the best people for the job, and keeps tax liabilities legal and complied with.
The alternative, favoured by Miliband's Socialist chums in France and Spain, is secure, highly paid contractual jobs-for-life for a favoured few (trade union members, you can guess) with casual work with no contracts at all for the rest - and no contracts mean no legal protection, no insurance, no safety liability and lots of tax evasion. The Miliband system relies on cronyism, nepotism, the closed shop, bribes for jobs and all the fraud and corruption that follows Socialism everywhere. Don't forget from which party the most greedily corrupt MPs came.
Forget their public guff about equality - Labour always favours a 'it's who you know' system rather than a genuine meritocracy under which all have a fair chance. The stench of old-Labour corruption wafts from Miliband.
