“Is the meat in supermarkets Halal, Kosher or not either! Nobody has ever clarified that to me. I have been led to believe that it is actually Halal because the supermarkets do not wish to miss out on profitable sales to a now significant consumer sector of our society? Thus they cover that particular base buy selling Halal meat to everybody who shops there. After all the end product of a piece of corpse in a plastic wrapped tray is in no way altered by the actual slaughter process of Halal (or kosher to be fair) and we (!!) whoever 'we' are, do not object about the issue, unlike Muslims who do not like our slaughter procedure...anybody clarify at all please?”

“A further nasty taste in the mouth was the "charity" days held by the retailer, staff were (again!) "requested" to come to work in fancy dress and also pay a £1.00 or even £2.00 for the privilege. This was as well as provide their own fancy dress. If they didn't wish to partake they were (again!) deemed as 'negative' and this would get reflected in when they were offered work. Targets were set for collection of charity donations as well.

When I made an inquiry as to whether the retailer would match fund the donations raised and made by staff no clear answer was forthcoming despite repeatedly asking. Yet when the cheque was presented to charity, well, guess who's name was on the cheque. I worked for a mass retailer in management at a high level for many years and saw the decline first hand of employees rights, money, conditions and decent treatment as human beings, that flies in the face of all the so-called employment law that they bleat on is now so onerous on companies.

Just like the tax avoiders, the HR departments come up with ways to circumvent the requirements of the law by exploiting loopholes and the parts of the laws that the proponents of such never thought of in their haste to trumpet there so called success and therefore popularity as champions of employees.”

“This is exploitation and abuse of workers security, rights and ability to hold a job. My daughter graduated from University and whilst holding down a voluntary job for a year (that is what was wanted before any consideration of a salaried position with a County Council, in itself another abuse of her desire to work in a specific social sector..), she was on a four hour a week contract with a major mass clothing retailer.

They would not give her a " full working" week contract. Some weeks she was told there was not enough in the budget to give her more than 4 hours because the store had not hit its previous weeks targets??? But,it was also made clear if she did not come in when contacted and this could be at an hours notice, from midnight to "whenever you finish" or calls at 7.00 am to come in within 30 minutes for an eight+ hour shift, she would be deemed "unwilling" or "negative" and therefore the 'requests' would not be forthcoming in future.

She was lucky as she was single, very flexible, prepared to work at any opportunity at her inconvenience, lived at home, had no child care issues, and no major bills to pay etc. This was worker exploitation to get around the stricter employment laws. it was not a small struggling business, it is a major corporation fleecing workers to pay shareholder fat cats and pension fund investors.”

“i didnt miss your point, you just didnt put it across very well.
your comment implied that these young girls entice/ deserve this abuse.
it goes far deeper than the way they dress, many of the young girls that are groomed come from families that are in someway broken or difunctional, so they tend to be vunarable, and that makes them easy targets.”
