The Scotsman - - News Digest -

The Arch­bishop of Can­ter­bury has come un­der fire af­ter it emerged the Church of Eng­land uses zero-hour con­tracts and in­vests in Ama­zon – de­spite his at­tacks on both dur­ing a speech ear­lier this week.

Speak­ing at the TUC Congress, Justin Welby crit­i­cised firms like Ama­zon for pay­ing “al­most noth­ing” in taxes and de­scribed zero-hours con­tracts as “the rein­car­na­tion of an an­cient evil”. It has now been re­vealed at least two Church of Eng­land cathe­drals are ad­ver­tis­ing ze­ro­hours con­tract jobs.
