Tesco Cardiff staff 'upset and angry' at 1,100 jobs threat

Recommended Posts

Find it hard to understand how relocating the jobs to Scotland can be such a money saver for Tesco, is there really that much difference in cost bases and wages between Scotland and South Wales?

They should have consolidated in Wales.

Dundee is the heart of working class rabid SNP nationalism.

It is a risk they'll all give good customer service to the English from there.

Dundee also voted to remain in the EU (60% to 40%).

That is probably as relevant to Tesco's decision making process as the area's voting record in the Scottish Independence Referendum.

This has nothing to do with the EU.

Actually, you can thank the increases in the minimum wage and rate hikes for this. All the traditional bricks and mortar retailers are under huge pressure because of these extra costs. Look at any British retailers on the LSE - they are all getting pulverised, as it's just not economical to sustain a business with such high costs.

for the first time ever dundee is being giving things to help it. dundee was the sick man of scotland, its a shame cause its a great city with a fantastic heritage. used to be more millionaires in dundee than anywhere else in the world at one time. aberdeen got the oil industry and with it a chunk of the population of dundee left. allmost 40% of the population left and it went into permanent decline. dundee was for scotland as liverpool as for england an old industrial powerhouse that lost its shine.  So the money that labour never gave is now being giving to revive the city, which seems a sensible thing to do.
