ob fear on plant closure
As many as
3,000 jobs could go across the Midlands
in the wake of the decision to axe the Allscott sugar beet factory, it was revealed today.
British Sugar’s decision to close the plant last week has been dubbed “Black Tuesday” by a leading farming expert because of the enormous impact it will have on the rural community.
NFU senior policy adviser Andrew Richards believes as many as 3,000 jobs could go — a quarter of them in Shropshire.

Crisis leads to axe for 63 jobs

By STEVE TODD

One of Shropshire’s leading construction companies has been placed into administration, throwing 63 people out of work.
Staff at Telford-based civil engineering firm CJ Pearce & Company Ltd have already been told they are being made redundant after spending the last week on “gardening leave”.

And another 30,000 jobs to be lost here:

On top of new statistic that unemployment in Shropshire has risen by 30% over past 12 months.

Don't think it will affect house prices though, as many parts of Shropshire are being collonised by relatively wealthy outsiders who use it a holiday resort. The UK's milk industry is being destroyed (in part by the likes of Tesco) due the fact that farmers can make money selling buildings to part time occupiers rather than by working the land.
