    Default Unemployment what crisis ?

    Ian Kehoe from SBP has done some research. We will need immigration in the next 5 years

    In the past month Battie has announced 980 new jobs
    In the past 5 months the Government have announced 1,200 high quality jobs
    Firms supported by EI have created a further 1,000 jobs in the 6 months

    Happy days

    Battie has also announced a further 10,000 will be created under the €36 million PRSI incentive scheme ( cost of net €3,600 per job )

    IDA has announced that within 5 years it will create 105,000 new jobs
    The innovation task force strategy proposal has promised 115,000 new jobs.
    Smart Economy document has earmarked 250,000 new jobs
    Green energy strategy document another 80,000
    Last week Enterprises Ireland another 60,000 promised over the next 5 years


    If you add them all up you get 600,000 new jobs.


    We have without doubt turned the corner......................if they think we believe that BS

    I think at this stage people have given up all hope.

    The rich are getting richer and the rest of us are in some type of twilight zone hoping for positive news.

    Im just waiting for the house of cards to finally collapse so we can get on with rebuilding.

    I watched a film late last night that was on Film 4 , It was a film by ken Loache called the Navigators.

    It tells the story of the reactions of five Sheffield rail workers to the privatisation of the railway maintenance organisation for which they all work, and the consequences for them. The film was inspired by the failure of the Connex South Central and the Connex South Eastern franchises: Connex lost both franchises because of poor service.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Navigators_(movie)

    I would recommend people watch this film to see our industry has been destroyed both here in Ireland as well as the UK.

    Without real jobs our country will never survive.

    I have been suspicious of Enterprise Irelands support for certain businesses recently. Just when I think I am being too cynical I see this

    John Connolly, a director of EI since 2001, has listed two companies where the semi-state has invested more than €16m as areas of personal interest for him.

    Nice work if you can get it.

    Stop it Hammer, there are jobs for us all working at Tesco 12 hours per week on the checkouts!

    Tesco Ireland to create 748 jobs


    Tesco Ireland is to open seven new stores and generate hundreds of jobs as part of a €113m investment.


    Under the retailer's investment plans for the next year, the €113m will be spent redeveloping and opening new stores.

    Just forget about the small retailers that will go out of business thanks to Tesco.

    748 new jobs.

    1200 job losses when the Tesco`s open

    Tesco convenience opened a new unit on Thomas Street. Next door to Centra. Over time there will only be one winner
