You Are Not Using The Eu Labour Pool To The Company Advantage

Recommended Posts

Talking to a friend who works in the building products industry, don't want to say more than that regards area of expertise or position.

He was taking to a manager of one plant, and the guy was telling him how it is. The firm is owned by a big foreign outfit from over the "pond" And this firm employs a hard nosed Israeli consultant to ring the best possible profit out the the companies operations world wide. Which fair enough that's what business is all about.

Any how the consultant is not happy with the wage bill. And he has told the plant manager to start shedding labour. Because if not they will come in and do it for him.....know what I mean. The consultant also said he should get shut of the majority of the local labour. Keeping or hiring only good supervisors, with the rest coming from the flood of cheap EU labour desperate for jobs.

Globalisation.....don't you just love. :ph34r:

As long as everyone is made redundant and no one else is hired to fill the same positions for 6 months that is all perfectly legal. In a downturn, getting rid of surplus staff is all part of business, if a firm then rehires 6 months (or a longer time period) later at a lower wage then that is just an efficiency gain.

What people do not realise is that once jobs go in this next recesison - they may never come back (e.g a new factory is opened in Eastern Europe) or if the jobs do come back they will be on lower wages (i.e Eastern European wages). It happened in the three major recessions with manufacturing jobs and now it is happening in higher skill jobs too. Looking good for a permanent fall in house prices - I should say so!
