From Wendy Bertram.
LAST week there was an article in this paper about the fact that there are not enough working people to cover the elderly population, putting pressure on pensions.
The week before Senator Ozouf said that his Regulations and Undertakings Committee would be encouraging finance industry businesses to move back-office jobs to India and other places.
This worrying statement should surely ring warning bells as the back-office jobs have been the way that mums returning to work have got back into the finance industry and also how our youngsters have got into their careers in this business.
It is getting increasingly difficult to find jobs on the Island to get a foot on any career ladder, you move the back-office jobs and what are we going to have to offer our youngsters?
With the recession hitting the UK, who is going to fill these gigantic high-rise buildings proposed for the financial district? Are you sure we can afford this in the present climate?
