A meeting is being held today (13th March) by the Buckinghamshire Trades Council saying "no to zero hour contracts".

They are campaigning for a £10-an-hour minimum wage because the cost of living is so high, especially in our county. 

Amy Murphy, the President of the shop workers union, USDAW, will be speaking at the event this evening. 

Steve Bell, will also be there chairing the meeting, he's Acting President of Buckinghamshire Trades Council:

"£10 an hour minimum wage would go some way to help raise people's living standards.

"What if they lose their job in this area because of high rents and high cost of living.

"The stresses and strains that it puts upon people is enormous.

"So, personally I can't imagine what it would be like to live not knowing how much I was going to earn each week."

The public meeting is being help at The Railway Club, Coxhill Way in Aylesbury and starts at 7:30pm.
