Jobs Again

Recommended Posts

Last year the newsfeeds were full of reports of Hospital trusts running up large deficits. This year seems to be crunch time - falling jobs and bed count, what you get when you run a system on the never never, just like the rest of the economy.

Cement suppliers cutting too - hardly surprising - who can reasonably afford the "ladder", very few new entrants now.

Investigation as St George’s axes 300 jobs

St George's must halve its deficit by April 2006. DeadlinepixGH0542B

Wandsworth's health and scrutiny panel is to investigate the impact of the loss of three hundred jobs at St George's Hospital, announced last month.

ONE of the town's biggest employers Castle Cement is to cut its production workforce by almost a third.

Around 48 production staff at the company's Ribblesdale works are being axed taking the number of workers involved in the manufacture of cement at the Clitheroe site to just 110.

The redundancies mean the total workforce will be reduced to 283. In its heyday the cement giant employed 420 members of staff, but there has been a continuous programme of reduction over the years.

Scottish Power to shed 450 jobs

The job cuts follow rising wholesale energy prices

Energy firm Scottish Power has announced it is cutting 450 jobs across the UK over the next 18 months.

I bought Scottish Power shares recently - excellent news!

All I need now is for one of the potential buyers to come in with a bid and hey presto free money.

Jobs on line at hosiery factory

HOSIERY workers at Hinckley's H Flude factory in Rugby Road were today to find out if they have a future in the firm. The family company, run by third-generation managing director Simon Flude, currently employs 75 people producing mainly women’s tights and stockings. A review of the manufacturing arm of the business was launched last month, in consultation with workers and union representatives, who, by lunchtime today, were to be told of its findings. The worst-case scenario, said Mr Flude ahead of the announcement, would be that 65 jobs could be axed. It appears that the company could be moving away from direct manufacturing to concentrate on importing goods, while retaining the Flude name.

Somebody give Brown a kick up the backside! A ray of light though has been the new Airbus, could create a lot of new jobs in the UK. Could aviation be the place to be in coming years? Demand from China is surging.

I was listening to a Radio 5 show when I was driving into work. They interviewed some retail types, a couple of them were seriously depressed about their lot. They reckoned it was as if somebody flicked a switch in July and all the sales aren't happening.

Needless to say they were howling for interest rate cuts. One dear chap was saying it was for the young, "Without an interest rate cut, the young will never be able to afford a house", he protested, "I'm only thinking of the younger generation, what chance have they got?".

Can't see the wood from the trees, they simply don't understand we've spent way more than we earn and it's gotta be paid back.

They had a guest who said his mortgage repayment had leapt from £650/month to £850/month because his cheap deal has gone. Reckoned there was loads in the same situation as him. Poor lambs, having to service their debts...

:rolleyes:

Interesting that the politician is at the "good news" site.

Any sign of him sympathising at any "bad news" site.

Oh and did Doncasters receive any "incentive" from the taxpayer?

In which case might not be there too long.
