"Five hundred jobs could go at Solway Foods, Corby"

"Bosses at Solway Foods in Corby have revealed that up to 500 jobs at its town plant could go by mid-April."

"The company, which employs 900 people making salads and sandwiches, says its factory in Godwin Road is not viable in the long term and it is now several weeks into a 45-day consultation process with workers."

Some of these people will really have to use their loaf to get a new job, or maybe turn over a new leaf.

Still, the upper crust are still doing well.

Perhaps more people are making their own sandwiches at home due to squeezed incomes?

In the town I live in DG12 there are a lot of cafes/sandwich providers. Two of the cafes have cut their opening hours.

Yup.

The ironic thing is that as these people are sacked it further squeezes consumers incomes, meaning economic demand will fall still further which will result in more job losses elsewhere.

Still, that's nothing that replacing wages with debt via HTB won't solve.

Is the land worth more for housing/flats?

It used to be a steel works.

From steel production to sandwich packing. Thats progress for you or rather Tory Rentierism.

Another 10-20 years and I reckon we'll be tilling the land by hand.

In the years 1965 and 1966 – preceding nationalisation – there was no investment at all in British industry. A company like the Consett Iron company was capable of paying out £1,318,000 in dividends, despite a loss of £347,000. When the nationalised British Steel Corporation (BSC) was formed in 1966, the (Labour) government paid £1,165 million to private owners for assets later valued by the BSC at only £834 million.

They were at it back then.

They don't make sandwiches at Corby, they make salads,

Their other factory at Worksop makes sandwiches and employs over 1200 people.

It's good to hear what the factory actually makes, thanks.

At first I thought perhaps more people were making their sandwiches at home due to being economically squeezed. Now that I find they make salads I think perhaps more people are growing their own salad stuff due to being economically squeezed.I have read a few times that seed sales for home grown have risen a lot.

If I want a salad sandwich, where's it coming from?
