What We Saw
Ending relationships can be awkward - but most agree doing it by text message is unacceptable. Unless you're the boss of a bus firm, that is.
Workers at GHA Coaches in Wrexham, north Wales, received a poorly written text-speak SMS to notify them of imminent redundancy. Some were drivers out on routes. Up to 400 staff now face the dole line.
Management didn't even say soz. FWIW the company should be nationalised, and BTW open the books so workers can see where the money's gone. Bring all public transport into common ownership under democratic workers' mgmt & ctrl. K thx bye.
