It’s all in the timing. No sooner does one of Northern Irelands’s biggest Engineering companies announce the loss of 750 jobs than lo and behold there is an official announcement of 100 new jobs. Well, not quite. It is ” up to” 100 new jobs, timeline vague, cost of INVEST NI subsidy unclear. Oh and the nature of these jobs? In a call center. Working for an Indian company which we are told is already one of Londonderry’s biggest employers. Remarkable to see Northern Ireland transformed into a sub-Delhi with call centers and presented as the jewel in Arlene Fosters economic crown. I do not wish to demean Call Center workers but if this is the future it is bleak. Why send kids to University to accrue huge debts so they can then function as call center workers?
