Wonder just how many Tesco employees are going in their clear-out.Probably around 40% in the Bay store but it is every metro store getting hit.Must be thousands losing their jobs in the next few days.

Absolutely no idea what you are talking about. It's a good idea to put a link to a story with posts like this.

Nice....folks play a part in generating 2Bn of profit then are told to GTF.

Every little helps I guess.

Heres the bit that gets me most....how many low wage workers in Tesco are on tax credits?

If Tesco staff contribute to earning a £2B why is the taxpayer subsidising their wages.
How the F do you need to cut costs when you profit £2B in a year???

Just for clarity, the article gives the number for operating profit and not net profit as suggested

Not sure if that includes worldwide stores. Here they pay on average about 10$ USD per day. A lot of the goods u see in the UK come from Thailand sourced products for Tesco. Living costs in Thailand have went up significantly in the last few years but staff wages haven't. Tesco are no better over here than they are in the UK.

Please don't book me Admin, it will ruin my life.

I'm not getting into an argument about accountancy treatment, but I'd understand your point if I had conflated gross and net profit.

We could use a baseline of 1.7Bn of pretax profits if you would prefer? I think my point still stands.....

Ipswich, if you or anyone else has a private pension then there is a very good chance you indirectly own or have owned shares in tesco. The managers of those funds will be pressuring the tesco bod to maximise profits so they can give greater returns to those pension pots.

Turn on, Tune in, Drop out.

I've no idea how much tax they pay or if they have loans for fridges/freezers/warehouse machinery/lorries/etc that all need to be serviced/deducted?

I also believe operating profit is against core business operations only, so not sure how much is spent on developing future things like smart shops, data analytics, next gen self scanning etc) or any non core business ventures or investments which will all change that number?

Not trying to be pedantic but just saying the number give in the article isn't the bottom line which could look quite different

Understand DBP, and I know that the sector margins are ridiculously thin.

Yep TOWK, I'm sure we are all benefiting from and/or subject to those forces.

It just pisses me off that folk act like this and the losers are the folk who would much rather keep a job, many of whom who will have been knocking their pan in.

What is also worrying is the number of companies that are making significant job reductions....clearly nobody is expecting a buoyant UK in the near term.

Don't know about that in terms of the grocery industry. Everybody has to buy food and drink. Tesco just got their business model wrong. Look at all the Aldi and Lidl stores that have opened over the past 10 years with many more scheduled to be built.

Tesco are parasites. A few years ago when they were on top of their game they were happily land banking to avoid investments in towns that may affect their own stores. They also built their massive superstores and put a lot of independent and smaller business out of business.

Oh, but they bring jobs cried the councillors. Look at them now, though. The small stores have always been a joke. More expensive than the bigger stores so effectively punishing older and poorer people for not having the ability to get up to one of their big stores.

Hopefully the small stores will be picked up by the likes of co-op and staff retained.

Co-op is about as expensive as M&S for me in Dundee. Not a chance I'm shopping there. Asda is by far the cheapest for a big shop, but that's way up at the far en dog the Kingsway. Lidl/Aldi are brilliant for what you can get though

The co-ops are just the same as the small Tescos and other convenience stores. They sell 75% booze, sweets and crisps at premium prices.

Glad nobody feels sorry for the people who have lost their jobs as it's better to slag tesco.

Feel completely sorry for them. It's bad enough being without a job because your company folded. It must be much worse to be punted so they can make even more money.
I was commenting on the comparison between Tesco's convenience stores and others.

I worked within the Tesco business model a few years ago, I found out their true colours towards contractors and suppliers.

Literally we are Tesco's you will dance to our tune and price structure.

You pay peanuts you get monkeys, from the supply chain side of things that is where they are at. On front of house they seem to have reached a new all time low!

Stopped using Tesco many years ago as a result!

They are all bracing themselves for the equal pay settlement, Asdas are the test case and are on their 3 appeal, Supreme Court making the decision.
5 supermarket chains going to have big payouts if the case wins.

I thought the Rosyth one might get turned into a Jack's (Tesco's answer to Aldi).

I assumed closures but just read that it's efficiencies.

I read the BBC article on this last week and it never mentioned any closures of metro stores... Only cost cutting by shedding workers at metro stores. They (Tesco) reckon it will save them 1.5 billion.
Also read that they were reducing the opening hours of express stores.
