Tesco’s Salford Makes Riot Hit Staff Make Up Lost Hours: Mammon Laughs

by | 18th, August 2011

EVER wondered why no staff stepped in to save Tescos from being smashed to bits by the mob during teh riots? Well, get this news from Manchester: staff sent home under police advice from a Tesco’s in Salford sare being ordered to make up lost hours:

A Tesco spokesman opens his mouth and actually says these words:

“The safety of our staff and customers was our priority. We are very proud of the way the team in Salford and other stores dealt with an extremely frightening situation, going to great lengths to protect our people and get stores re-opened for local communities as soon as possible.

“Our Salford Metro store was closed on the advice of the police. Staff were held back only so the store manager could check it was safe for them to leave. Staff have been given a number of reasonable options to make up their hours. One staff member at Salford is making time back at just 10 minutes a day.”

As Anorak reader Yampster says:

I would have thought Tesco would be pleased. This is one town centre they can’t be accused of ruining
