British Gas, how are Sid’s grandchildren?

#The older I get the less I understand.

From Jonty Bloom’s, blog: …..Just look at British Gas; it is in the middle of firing its engineers and re-hiring them on worse terms and conditions, I have not heard anything from the government on this and the reason is simple. They don’t care, in fact they think it is good for business….gradually remove employment rights and then watch as big business squeeze their workers until the pips squeak. It should mean cheaper services and bigger profits, in theory. What it really means is lower productivity and wages…..gradually remove employment rights and then watch as big business squeeze their workers until the pips squeak. It should mean cheaper services and bigger profits, in theory. What it really means is lower productivity and wages. Also it costs me more to insure my boiler with British Gas, than the rest of the house combined. Anyone like to explain that one?

Perhaps management had something to do with it? The Gas Act 1986 sold the company to private investors as British Gas plc….read the full story here. Was Sid right to get involved or are his children and grandchildren picking up the tab? Especially the ones who trained as Gas Engineers…
