Deputy leadership contender's reaction to BBC gangmaster expose

DAGENHAM, UNITED KINGDOM--(CCNMatthews - April 26, 2007) - Jon Cruddas, MP for Dagenham and deputy leadership contender for the Labour Party:

"We're witnessing the results of an extraordinary race to bottom in the modern labour market and its' effects are ricocheting through our economy.

"The Labour party has always been always been the forum for progress on issues of working, fairness and social justice and for that reason this must be central to the debate around the renewal of the party. We must act to prevent horrendous abuses by unscrupulous employers, criminal gangs and landlords by providing basic employment protections for all workers."
