The Trades Union Congress said the Government is "desperately short on solutions" when it comes to the use of zero hours contracts.
The growth of zero hours contracts is one of the reasons why so many hard-working people are fearful for their jobs and struggling to make ends meet, in spite of the recovery.
But while the Government has identified some of the problems faced by those with zero job security, it's desperately short on solutions to curb the use of these contracts.
Through the consultation, the TUC and unions will propose tougher action in order to tackle abuse of zero hours contracts, which can leave people not knowing how much they'll be earning from one week to the next.
