Why no admit that a lot of companies are downsizing, even SONY have just closed the likes of Zipper Interactive [/quote]
The economy sucks and companies are learning how to do more with less, but some are still successful. All that matters to them is profits, not staff.
Starcraft as well which is huge in Korea.
They have money to invest and brand recognition. Activision, as much as I hate what they have done to gaming, is a giant compared to Sega.
[quote=“Team Andromeda”]That depends on the Job, but for most Factory work -where you’ll need to be trained on the premises in most cases, it’s a bullcrap excuse and do we really extra training to be a bus/taxi driver or long distance drivers ?
That’s the trouble now, immigration it’s just taking Jobs British don’t want to do (like fruit picking) its talking jobs the British have done for years [/quote]
The point still stands. 3/4 jobs go to immigrants. 1 million 18-25 year olds have no future. That can’t be blamed only on lack of personal responsibility.
The economy is simply terrible, and thanks to the internet, no one can ignore it anymore.
That’s just a convenient excuse for a failing system. The UK is spending nearly 10 billion on the Olympics. The Tories claim that cuts are necessary then spend billions bombing Libya. We still send aid overseas when we can’t afford it.
There are no jobs. Most of the IT sector was outsourced to India as well.
No one can blame the unemployed for that.

But far too many have played the system. Being out of work or ill through no fault of your own is one thing.Not working while having 4 or more kids , or pretending to have a illness stopping from you working (when there’s nothing wrong with you ) is quite another.
And its always the ones that’s never worked ,never paid in to the system that know their full rights get all the benefits under the sun and makes full use of the NHS system . While us silly buggers work and pay for it and get little from the system in return **

The UK only has itself to blame for wanting cheap labour.
All people are doing now is adapting to a dying system.
