Mike Ashley: Answer to Parliament

Force Mike Ashley to attend the Parliamentary Select Committee as requested and answer questions about the mistreatment of workers at Sports Direct.

Why is this important?

No one should be above the law. The mistreatment of workers at Sports Direct is a serious matter and I was glad to see Mike Ashley called into parliament to give evidence to Parliament about it. The fact he is refusing to go is outrageous, it shows how little he cares, and how much he has to hide.

I have worked under a zero hours contract before as has my dad and I hope I never have to again. Zero hours contracts make workers feel powerless and puts all the power in the hands of their employer. Mike Ashley is abusing his power and abusing his workers' rights and he absolutely should answer to Parliament.

Mike Ashley's arrogance over this matter is appalling. He treats his workers with contempt, now he's treating Parliament with contempt too.

It's time he faced the music!
