JUST one per cent of Brits think businesses should preach about social issues – with people wanting bosses to focus on keeping prices down and creating jobs.
New polling shows voters believe firms should concentrate on getting the basics right rather than campaigning.

Product pricing, quality and job creation are the top three demands the public want on businesses.
Whereas just 4 per cent think firms should bang the drum for a “social purpose”.
The survey comes as the Jobs Foundation launches a drive to get more people in the workplace and pull people out of poverty.
Chief executive Georgina Bristol said: “The biggest and most effective engine to tackle poverty is the business community.
“By creating the jobs which take people out of poverty, offering training to help people fulfil their potential, and funding public sector jobs through taxation, businesses offer an economic and social infrastructure for the country and help reduce poverty.”
