Mini factory layoffs

Now I know things are serious:

BMW has confirmed that 850 jobs are to go at the Cowley plant in Oxford, which makes the Mini, and that weekend working has been scrapped.

All agency workers who did the weekend shift at the factory have lost their jobs, with immediate effect.

The site is closing for a week after a fall in sales as a result of the economic downturn.

And the rest of it.

  1. No surprises there. We had a friend to lunch yesterday in a new Mini Cooper with the two doors at the back, double sunroof, piped leather seats, 1.8 engine. Very stylish. Nice motor!
