Britons rally against 'Zero Hour' contracts

Employees and anti-poverty activists raise their voices against agreements that do not guarantee working hours.

    Employees and anti-poverty activists gathered in London on Saturday to protest against so-called Zero Hour contracts - agreements which do not guarantee working hours.

    The use of these contracts grew during the worldwide financial crisis.

    Critics say they lead to abuse by companies.
