I made a typo and you don't appear to know how to use the apostrophe. There.

 

And believe it or not, if you ever bother to read the likes of NBR or just business news generally, restructurings that take out 100+ jobs or have the potential to are frequently given wide coverage, regardless of the percentage of workforce affected. And people have also explained to you how this event is indicative of other aspects about TWG that may be newsworthy but just keep shouting your original assertion. Assertions apparently become more convincing the more often you repeat them!

Ok, so you feel free to denigrate my post based on an apostrophe, but you also feel free to justify your typo as ok? Both are typo's as you well know. Unless we should perhaps write them out and scan them?

 

"believe it or not" ok, there you go again.

 

No, I'm not shouting, I am posting my opinion. Which is, 1.9% of staff layoff is not material. If it was, we would have pages upon pages of news articles. But there isn't. Because its a well known company it's clickbait.

 

You need to take a deep breath and calm down.   

 

EDIT

 

Or stop seeking arguments for the sake of it

So what? It seems like clickbait to get the nation and workers riled up. The fact is The Warehouse is big. Have you been to one? They have staff everywhere, checkouts, return area, wandering around, let alone the admin staff. Its 2 per store, so what? Unless its a crime to improve profitability and competitiveness in order to stay in business and employ people? Seems so. 

 

 

I dont understand why you are upset about this. This is news...it isnt opinion. 

 

It is potentially 180 people without jobs.

Im not upset lol. If some think that losing 2 non shop floor staff per store is news, thats fine. My opinion is its nothing more than managing a business efficiently in the face of competition and managing costs. 180 sounds a lot, but less than 2 per store isnt much. 180 out of 12000 isnt much. The staff that on the shop floor is unchanged. Thats my opinion.
