Today Direct line insurance announced they where getting rid of 500 jobs in Liverpool, but at least we have the tourists.
The thing is we can never get back to full employment, look at all the steelworks, glass works, foundries, car factories,railway engine and carrige builders and other high users of the working classes have been desimated and or moved abroad.
Some enterprising people have gone the tourist route,showing kids down a mine, or an old factory, and telling them this is how your parents and grandparents used to work, making old british industries like some sort of disneyland theme park, then there are the trail centres, employing a few people, and bringing tourists into an area, llandegla and Blaenau Festiniog being 2 local ones, and hopefully the visitors spend some cash on B and B and in the local shops, supporting small buissneses.
Tourism and ofice jobs are not going to create 12,000 jobs like in the local steelworks, now down to about 600.
We could create construction jobs and build stuff, but how is that going to soak up thousands of desk jockey types,that are curently being made redundant, people who have never worked outside or on a construction site.
Then there is the 4 year apprenticeships to train fully qualified tradesmen, only the teenagers are going to go down that route.
But then cam says were all in it together, and forgets to insert the word "shit" in the sentance.
