ONS: UK firms use 1.4m zero-hour contracts

[quote=http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-27219654]Nearly half of big companies in the UK use a total of 1.4 million zero-hours contracts, a study from the Office for National Statistics (ONS) says.
Zero-hours contracts do not guarantee a minimum number of hours of employment.
The ONS recently estimated that 583,000 people, around 2% of the UK workforce, were employed on zero-hours contracts between October and December 2013.
It said the data suggested that most workers on such contracts had at least two jobs.
