Pfizer cut 500 jobs in Cork.The following text from an article on the Examiner
"Opposition TDs are blaming the losses on the Government's failure to control rising costs for industries that are harming Ireland's competitiveness. "
If they could only muster the courage and admit that this is because of our crazy house prices we could then at least start thinking of ways to address this awful situation from deteriorating further.
Key point in Pfizer case:
Late last year, the company was forced to abandon plans to produce a new anti-cholesterol drug, torcetrapib at a plant at Ringaskiddy in County Cork which had been built at a cost of $90m. The company spent $800m developing the drug.
With respect to the bandwagon hoppers - an indication of what they would do to control said costs, eg, price controls would make their yammering a bit more credible.
The question is - how many of our work force are actively doing the maths versus quality of life/cost of living/stress....I know I am.
