    The conservative government have been encouraging OL and worker certification thanks to lobbying from corporate interests who want to limit health & safety liability.( Corporate manslaughter & homicide act) However they might have shot themselves in the foot, since putting cost burden restrictions on employment creates more poor people.
    The majority of the poor will vote for socialist ideology, socialism is closely linked to trade unionism. Trade unions are some of the most protectionist trade bodies in the UK. So we are left with the two main political parties in the UK pushing for OL to satisfy their lobbyists. Free market ideology is about inclusion not EXCLUSION. Maybe the conservative party need reminding!
