Kimberly-Clark Redundancies

Posted on September 21st, 2006 at 8:58 am

Well Kimberly-Clark, the makers of Andrex, have decided to shed a third (135) of it’s Brighton workforce. This isn’t great news of course and makes me wonder why this seems to happen to every company based at Trafalgar Place. It has a prison-like quality with those huge gates, maybe they think that some employers will strike back one day.

All the staff wear devices that you use to open doors but maybe they track movement too. And what are those strange plastic things in the ceiling? Yes, it the Big Brother house! It’s much easier to outsource the work after comprehensive ‘time and motion’ surveys. Err, allegedly.

Anyway, don’y buy Andrex, Charmin’s much better, and good luck to all the staff at Kimberly-Clark!

Oh, and here’s the trailer for the new 300 film by Frank Miller. Looks good.

And for a laugh. Here’s a Carry On Camping sketch from Shooting Stars:
