Professional issues: Labour Party

  • Increase the minimum wage to more than £8 an hour by 2019
  • Entitle workers on zero-hours contracts to convert their contracts into a regular job after only three months
  • Bring back the 10p tax rate and reverse the 50p tax cut for earnings over £150,000
  • Keep “triple lock” on state pensions so they rise by the highest of inflation, earnings or 2.5%
