This is the true reason for the mass unemployment in this country, so many companies used the recession as an excuse to making people redundant. It will also protect workers from being manipulated.
Too many British companies are making staff redundant and re-employing others in their roles overseas.
Make it illegal for companies to make redundancies and move those roles abroad, ie Indian call centres.
Too many companies make workers redundant just so the fat cat board members can have a payrise. In future, companies have to get permission from the government to make mass redundancies.
