Brexit fallout: Make, Sheppard Robson and AL_A shed staff


Make seem to have over 100 employees, so a 10% temporary staff pay cut (perhaps even less among the directors) would have averted the redundancies. In 2008 many practices preferred to offer that option to staff to avoid the trauma (and disgrace) of 'letting people go', that obnoxious euphemism. The industry has a hire-and-fire culture unthinkable (and in many countries impossible) elsewhere in europe. It extols the free movement of labour, while treating that human resource as little more then live-stock it can 'shed'.
