Low-paid staff would lose £2200 under Tory workers' rights reforms, says Labour

The Tories said the requirement to sell would ensure developers considered the private sale value of the property, leading to higher quality homes, while the proceeds would be reinvested over time in new social housing.

In this election, which Theresa May has called because of Brexit, which without UKIP would never have happened, I will be reminding voters that the Tory government after June 8th will be a Remain dominated one, led by the Remainer-in-chief Theresa May.

"The choice is clear: economic stability and a better deal for workers under my Conservative team, or chaos under Jeremy Corbyn".

Prime Minister Theresa May instead focused on workers' rights in light of the cyber attack, which has caused many people to be concerned about the future of the NHS.

-Protect all worker's rights now guaranteed by European Union law "as we leave the EU".

One of the focuses of the Taylor review, which has yet to be published, was on how to protect workers in gig economy companies such as Uber and Pimlico Plumbers Ltd., whose status and rights entitlements were unclear.

It said plans for the wage to reach 60% of median hourly earnings had been changed to "in line with median incomes", which would mean lower payments.

-Representation for workers on company boards.

"The Conservatives tried to ban workers from striking and were blocked by the Liberal Democrats in government", said the former business secretary, who clashed with Number 10 over workers' rights in the coalition years.

Other policies in the manifesto aimed at bolstering workers' rights will include a statutory right to child bereavement leave, for those "who suffer the tragedy of loosing a child".

Parents who lose a child will also be given rights to bereavement leave and people with fluctuating mental health conditions such as depression will be protected from discrimination under reforms to the Equalities Act, which now covers only constant conditions.

Labour's manifesto, which was leaked to journalists last week, however, does go further.

Moreover, it pledged to introduce new return-to-work programmes after a period of absence and said it would reform the Equalities Act.

Andrew Gwynne, Labour's campaigns and elections chair, said the Prime Minister was "taking working people for fools".

May has vowed to include new rights for those who leave work to care for family members, a commitment to continue increasing the National Living Wage and new protections for gig economy workers.
