Zero Hours Contracts

Free Speech, Series 2 Episode 7 of 8

'Are zero hours contracts fair?' asks the live debate show Free Speech. Many young people are on the contracts, which expect them to be available for work but will only pay them for the hours when they are needed. Some say they are not given enough hours every week to cover living costs, but some praise the flexibility of this way of working. The show comes from Cambridge, with both students and local workers in the audience. Presenter Rick Edwards chairs proceedings, with a live audience of 150 people aged 16-25. Tina Daheley (Radio 1 Newsbeat) gathers the Twitter, Facebook and website messages from viewers at home.
