I’ll Never Buy Bosch Again

leave a comment »

Bosch has announced the closure of their plant in South Wales with the loss to the area of 900 jobs. The production will move to Hungary, where labour costs are 65% lower.

The BBC website headlines it as ‘900 Bosch workers to get support’. This is a devastating blow to jobs and communities. The headline is meaningless. People don’t want support, they want their jobs.

The Welsh Assembly should demand repayment of the £21 million Bosch was given in 1991 as an incentive to locate there.
