Top target for differentiation employee ownership?......this one just got a whole lot worse

Well I know there are many candidates but surely one of the first must be to scrap what Martin Horwood described as a 'nasty and vindictive' clause in the mis-names Growth Bill. This is the clause that wants workers to swap their employment rights in exchange for the illusion of profit sharing. This has just got a whole lot worse. Tory Minister Michael Fallon has just confirmed that job seekers may be sanctioned if they refuse jobs with reduced employment rights. Time for our colleagues in the Lords to assert some clear Liberal principle. We should be advocating reform of company law to make employee ownership/profit sharing and participation the norm instead of letting the Tories introduce the  Beecroft proposals by the back door on our watch

I am happy to address most contributions, even the drunken ones if they are coherent, but I am not going to engage with negative sniping from those who do not have the guts to add their names or a consistent on-line identity to their comments. Such postings will not be published.

Anonymous comments with a constructive contribution to make to the discussion, even if it is critical will continue to be posted. Libellous comments or remarks I think may be libellous will not be published.

I will also not tolerate personation so please do not add comments in the name of real people unless you are that person. If you do not like these rules then start your own blog.

Oh, and if you persist in repeating yourself despite the fact I have addressed your point I may get bored and reject your comment.

The views expressed in comments are those of the poster, not me.
