Blacklisters to win contract
Blacklisting firm Balfour Beatty is set to win the £28 million contract from Dundee City Council to redevelop Dundee railway station.
The Scottish National Party-run council has a policy against awarding public contracts to blacklisters.
Short-term workers hired
The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is recruiting 2,800 people on short-term contracts.
Yet the Tories slashed 3,671 permanent jobs from the DWP in June alone.
Rents faster than prices
Private sector tenants could afford to work a four?day week if rents had risen at the rate of inflation, new research has found.
Office for National Statistics (ONS) shows that rents have risen more than twice as fast as living costs since 1998.
Plan for more welfare attacks
Tory Iain Duncan Smith has announced a new assault on disabled people. He wants to force more sick and disabled people off their benefits.
This comes ahead of the announcement of how many people have died after being found “fit to work” by former government contractor Atos.
