It’s the employment rights, stupid

Posted by irresponsibility

Tories this weekend called for a freeze on new employment rights

Chris Grayling, the shadow work and pensions secretary, told The Observer it would become ‘more difficult’ to make the case for flexible working in the darkening economic climate and called for deregulation to take the pressure off employers: ‘The one thing government must recognise is that it can’t keep piling regulation on small business….

Because, as we all know, it’s those damnable uppity employees and their rights we should be blaming for the “global economic crisis” (© G7).

  2. Of course it’s those employees’ faults! Though, for a different reason: all those loans they’ve been taking is what caused this whole thing. It’s really a shame that people are just walking blobs of debt nowadays.

  3. I agree with Chris Grayling, small business will suffer more during this recession, than the last, because whilst they may be able to batten down the hatches and try and survive the recession, government intervention, red tape and regulation will inevitably increase the number of business failure. This government has claimed to be business friendly, nothing could be further from the truth.
