Some Good News About Redundancies

Recommended Posts

Well I've just had a little chuckle and thought I'd tell you all about it.

I did a post last week telling you all about my cleaner and her husband. For those who didn't see the post my cleaner's husband worked for Powerhouse in a large retail park in Liverpool. He turned up for work last week to find the rest of the staff waiting outside one very closed and shuttered Powerhouse. After being escorted around the back of the building and into the offices they were all told that the shop would be closed from that day forward and that they had all just been made redundant.

Well, my cleaner has told me today that jobs are thin on the ground. The manageress of the store approached Comet about employment, but apparantly they too aren't doing so well. My cleaner did have some great news about her husband though. He attended an interview on Friday and has been offered a job! Just like that.

If debt collection agencies are desperate for staff right now, just think how desperate they'll be once the shit really hits the fan!

Are there any companies floated on the stock market whose main income is recovering debts (and are successful at it)?

:unsure:

P.S. BTW, the manageress is panicking apparantly as she just MEW'd on her house before Christmas and needs to find a job fast. :ph34r:

Good point: if there are I think I'll stuff a few quid their way.
