A world out of work
Sean O’Grady
WHATEVER the truth about what British Prime Minister Gordon Brown meant by his now infamous sound bite “British jobs for British workers”, the global truth is the downturn. In Britain, the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply points to job losses in the hard-pressed manufacturing sector alone of 30,000 a month for the foreseeable future. That will help to push the jobless total over the 3 million mark for the first time since the 1980s. In America, last week saw “Bloody Monday” — 72,000 jobs cut by seven different companies in 24 hours. That brings American jobs lost to the recession to 2.6 million since December 2007.
