The CBI claims 250,000 jobs would be lost – but service jobs always need doing.
Umm, you\’ve never hard of substituting capital for labour? Being a counter clerk in a bank is a service job. We\’ve a lot fewer of them than we would if we didn\’t have ATMs.
You\’ve failed to understand the most basic point. If agency workers become more expensive (which the application of permanent employment rights would do) then there will be fewer jobs available to agency workers. Might take a litle time to work through the system, but it\’ll definitely happen.
