Welcomed response from govt to on better rights for gig workers & self -employed. But we also need more joined up action to make more than 9.8% existing quality jobs flexible/part-time. So millions who need flexibility in work have more choice & chance to progress

'Gig economy' is one thing but construction workers (for eg) have been screwed over for decades (& Tory building trade grandees have repeatedly conspired to stop them fighting back for sick pay, hol pay, end to casualisation). Nationalise construction tbh.
