Yeah, but the company can't tell them what it hasn't decieded.

Upsetting for the workers I know, and I feel their frustration, but they'll just have to wait for a few days.

I went through something like this 18 months ago. The part of BAE that I worked for was in serious trouble, there was doubt over the ability to pay wages and we were given 4 months to find a buyer for ourselves or be closed down with the loss of 100 jobs!

In the end, a management buyout team got the company but 20% of the workforce (self included) still lost our jobs.

I am concerned but all is not lost yet - MG in particular will be an attractive asset for someone.

I do feel very sorry for the younger workers with mortgages and young families, in the same family position as me, being the main breadwinner..

I agree it's awful.

Been in that position myself 18 months ago.
We lost a third of the workforce.
Things picking up a bit now but it was an awful feeling.
You just feel so messed up, you even feel guilty for keeping your job when others get laid off.
Horrible.
I just hope they can salvage something.

My dad has had threats of redundancy for years now and I know the kind of frustration the workers families must feel atm. Its a terrible thing; it eats away at you.
