Default Tesco how dare they!

So Tesco are planning to sack up to 9,000 people from their organisation, why? Tesco has posted record profits for years they aren't in difficulties, it's just another huge company that can see a way of making even bigger profits and that way is by causing misery and hardship to 9,000 of it's loyal employees.

There should be a law stopping this disgusting corporate behaviour they are acting in a way that is on a par with the c*nt Philip Green.

I would call for a boycott on Tesco but that would just be an excuse to sack even more.[/color]

If only we'd voted to stay in the EU and been able to remain under their protection for such a crime against humanity.

Does that make it acceptable? I don't think so it's still 9,000 people out of work them and their families suffering out of pure corporate greed. I know hire em and fire em is the acceptable norm in the USA but it doesn't make it right.

what like the BHS staff were protected from having their pensions stolen by SIR Phillip Green? Typical remoaner, blame Brexit for any and everything.

Actually I'd blame unscrupulous capitalism, which is also the motivation for Brexit. You cannot play the social morality card when every action in the debate has been about making money irrelevant of the impacts to people and their wellbeing.

Indeed - it seems rather ironic that the loser in most visible respects is going to be the population in general.

Companies will do anything they can to safeguard against Brexit and ultimately that will mean trimming the fat off absolutely everything - we can certainly level that blame at Brexit. Of course, whether it's do with Brexit or to do with pure investment return / profits for nervous shareholders is a moot point, clearly they felt there was 9000 jobs to lose and it's not a charity.

Irrelevant and nothing to do with the topic at hand.

A quick google finds that 88% was apparently recovered - that's probably a better rate of recovery than the deficit most of us who are still working will benefit from.

Back to Brexit, as a concept it's great but the delivery and execution is farked right up. There'll be more job cuts to come yet under the name of it.
