WINNING THE WAR ON WAGES:

Almost 700,000 people in UK have zero-hours contract as main job (Phillip Inman, 25 February 2015, The Guardian)

Nearly 700,000 people are on zero-hours contracts in their main job - a rise of more than 100,000 on a year ago - according to new official figures. 

The rise is likely to trigger renewed debate over the widespread use of contracts that offer no guarantee of hours and only those benefits guaranteed by law, such as holiday pay.

Thanks, Maggie.
