There's been a lot of talk in the media recently about Zero Hours contracts. This type of employment contract means that an employer has the discretion to vary a worker's hours - from full-time hours to well, zero hours. So you would be expected to be on-call but only paid for the hours that you work. This type of employment contract is more common to the service sector (fast-food outlets and the like) especially in the United States. If you want to know what it's like living on a Zero Hours Contract, then "Hand to Mouth" is a must-read.
