The Liberal Democrats say they already know what a Conservative jobs plan looks like. In government the Lib Dems claim they blocked the Conservatives allowing businesses to fire workers at will. They now plan savage cuts for the working age poor only to the benefit of very wealthy pensioners.
A Lib Dem spokesman commented: "In government we secured over 2m new apprentices, record low unemployment, a record increase in the minimum wage, and transparency on the pay gap between men and women. Only the Liberal Democrats will create a stronger economy and a fairer society, delivering more jobs, more apprentices and fairer pay."
"A Labour government will raise the minimum wage to £8 an hour, invest in skills, cut business rates for small firms, give tax rebates to firms who pay a living wage, boost apprenticeships and ban exploitative zero hours contracts. Ms Reeves added.
