Supermarkets reduce jobs

Douglas Johnson 2010Supermarkets may say they boost business and create jobs (Star 27th August
2012) but it’s only their own business they boost, not the local shops they
put out of business.

Supermarkets reduce the overall number of jobs.  The whole point about
supermarkets is to sell a huge amount of goods using relatively few staff.
That’s why the Green Party opposes the unlimited expansion of supermarkets.
