Ed Miliband could be creating more instability for workers with his plans to effectively ban zero-hours contracts, a leading business group has said.
John Cridland, the director-general of the CBI, said Britain's flexible jobs market had helped deliver an employment rate "that is the envy of other nations", accusing Mr Miliband of "playing with jobs".
"Of course action should be taken to tackle abuses, but demonising flexible contracts is playing with the jobs that many firms and many workers value and need," he said.
"These proposals run the risk of a return to day-to-day hiring in parts of the economy, with lower stability for workers and fewer opportunities for people to break out of low pay."
More than 100 people claiming to represent working people across Britain have signed a letter backing Labour in the general election.
Tories take campaign to the factories of three businesses who publicly endorsed their economic plans.
Read the letter carefully, don't worry, it's short. Note that while it praises the Conservative-led government it does not mention Labour.
