Very sad about Oates, saw it on the news

Well there is some good news Nissan Sunderland are getting another new car to build so at least that is something, there is apparently full production next week and again after Christmas, but I think so many of us are worried at the moment - especially when you see places like Woolies closing down

Little wonder Wollies is closing down.

20th Century shopping!...who the hell wants to stand in a long line of mothers with Pushchairs, grumpy old people, and rude checkout staff?...when you can grab a coffee, put the heating on, listen to some of your favourite music, and enjoy perusing online for weird and wonderful Christmas present from around the world, at half the cost?

Sorry high street chains.... your days are numbered!

Just been down to Woolies in Chester le Street to see if any bargans were to be had. I have never seen it so busy. But SEP is correct about the mothers with pushchairs, if the way they drive those things is any indication I hope they dont drive cars!!!!!!!!!

Nissan have shutdown early, they are closed from today (hubby got sent home at 10.30am) instead of closing after next Tuesday, but the brief said that they will continue to look at ways to keep on all the workforce, on full pay, if the economic downturn continues. 

We will wait and see.........................

And the government's response to this?

Throw £78m at re-training people who have been made redundant!

What is the f*cking point of retraining people, if there are no Jobs for them???

Why not use that money to help Business's look at different markets, and actually survive in the first place, so as not to make people redundant in the first place?

Any ideas as to which business area I could re-train?
Are there any jobs that aren't currently at risk?

IMHO this situation appears is be hitting all business areas rather than just engineering/manufacturing where I work.

The only job which is not at risk is working for DWP in a Job Centre

it's a sad fact, but economies need recessions.

The crazy House prices, and ridiculous lending and retail prices that were just unsustainable had to come crashing down.

No economy can sustain that ludicrous level for ever... It was always a matter of 'when'..not 'if'

And Brown's way of handling it is utterly stupid!

Exactly!  The government are starting to piddle me off!

Also why do these damned banks not drop their interest rates, and the bl**dy energy companies not drop their prices, they're all quick enough to put them up.  If people had more money in their pockets each month, it'd lessen the blow.

And (while I'm on a rant) flippin Tyne Tees TV, who this morning reported that Nissan workers have to take a 75% pay cut in the New Year, my hubby saw the presentation at Nissan yesterday and nowhere did it say that, so stop trying to scare people you media bods, things are bad enough in this world without you making more doom and gloom!  :evil:
