The author of a nine month review of the modern work place hit out at exploitative bosses for treating staff like ‘cogs in a machine’
BRITAIN’S growing army of casual workers must be “treated like humans beings” and given a major boost in their rights and wages, a major government report will this week declare.
Matthew Taylor, the author of a nine month review of the modern work place, hit out last night at exploitative bosses who treat staff like “cogs in a machine”.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, the key former Tony Blair advisor slammed companies like Uber and Deliveroo for taking advantage of causal workers on zero hours contracts.
Mr Taylor said: “We have travelled all round the country, and it has seemed to us that there has been an attempt by some firms to transfer all the risk onto the shoulders of the most vulnerable workers.
“There is clearly an issue with fairness, and we can encourage employers to offer their workers more security.”
Royal Society of Arts head Mr Taylor was appointed by Theresa May last October to also probe today’s tech-driven economy is changing employment practices.
The PM will unveil the Taylor Review in a major speech in which she will relaunch her Premiership tomorrow.
But The Sun can reveal today that he is putting forward more than 50 recommendations, including a raft of major law changes.
