I do feel for everybody who has had the news of redundancy this week but I don't think for one minute that this is an isolated case. I have thought for some time now that Guernsey is gradually pricing itself out of the employment market due to the ridiculously high costs of living and working here. EVERYTHING from property to food, Electricity to telcoms cost twice as much and of course it has all been market driven for years (ironically by the influx of highly paid finance professionals in the good times) The trend is bound to continue and increase year on year as businesses look to maintain their profitability in a dire global economy looking for cheaper labour in other parts of the world where they can employ staff for a fraction of the cost. In stark contrast to this, we have our illustrious deputies and senior civil servants who are refusing to change their spending ways or find savings, and who will quite possibly push many local people over the financial edge when they eventually demand more taxes from us all when they fail miserably with the FTP. Guernsey is going to be a very different place in a few years from now.
