Public Shun Employee-Ownership Scheme

Most people don’t like government proposals for owner-employee schemes.  According to a YouGov poll held recently 63% of those polled disliked the much-heralded scheme trumpeted by Chancellor Osborne at the Conservative conference in Birmingham.

The Chancellor’s plan involved employees exchanging their employment, redundancy and flexible working rights for shares in their employer’s business.

“George Osborne is clearly trying to present an idea that strikes a balance by enabling employers to fire people more easily, while at the same time giving employees considerable benefits for giving up some of their rights. However, the public opposition to this proposal would indicate that the Chancellor has a considerable amount of work to do to convince people that this is a good idea,” said Laurence Janata-Lipinski, Political Research Manager at YouGov.
