A young man works for a major security group contracted to government departments. He receives minimum wage on a zero hours contract, and the cost of workwear is deducted from his pay. His first few months were spent on 16-hour night shifts, during which he had no breaks. He was required to work long hours on different sites over both Christmas and New Year. He says, “If I refuse, I don’t get any work over the following weeks.”
