Sky News Jobs Monitor

Recommended Posts

Am watching Sky News live at 5 and they just had a "Sky News Jobs Monitor" section were they tallied through some recently annouced job losses - 9000 so far this week.

First time I've seen this, regiular feature?

Think they summarised this

I think they had this in the early 90's.

and the 80s. it was a feature just before the weather.

nows it probably "and now.....Job losses. sponsered by monster".

i expect rainy job losses in the north. brightening to sunny spells of employment in the south east.

overall outlook. fair to middlum.

It's baaaack.

Like a morbid body count every day. I remember those days! Growing unemployment is now newsworthy because it concerns so many. Its the end of Gordon's "Miracle Economy" and all the wealthdebt it created. We have priced our houses out of reach and our ability to be competitive in the real world. Jobs go overseas as a result.

if jobs go overseas, then why do we take in immigrants for jobs ?

To keep IRs down and the 'miracle' going a little longer

oh yes - this brings back memories.

it was on ITN's News at Ten with sir alistair burnett &/ or sandy gall.

they'd show a map of the UK and the great swathes of job losses in red :(

then they would show the jobs gains announced in green - 2 x part time assistants in a

carnaby street boutique, 20 jobs at the new norwich branch of mcdonalds etc etc...

then they would cut to a story about a skateboarding duck or something, just to show everything was alright with the world. <_<

Ah! yes I remember when I was a lad, etc. blah, blah! Mid eighties was as RFD says a time when job losses on a huge scale were announced daily as a regular feature...I was wondering when it would happen again.

Radio 2 had a great interview earlier with a guy from the city during business news about the stock market falls today. Muppet journo trying to get him to dumb the message down but he was saying America is in/heading for recession, bigger debt than 1929, unsustainable, etc. Here comes the big slide.

To do all the crappy NMW jobs that we are too good to do so the taxes they pay will support our dole benefits...apparently!
