Strikes at JJB stores
We have noted some 'hoo- ha' about this major high street chain. There have been strikes , which in itself, seems a thing from the past, at their stores. There have been picket lines at the JJB stadium in Wigan, as well as other forms of demonstration.
JJB owner Dave Whelan is a despot. He employs young people in his stores at minimum wage. He bought the name JJB from a guy on Wigan market , the name is JJ Broughton.
Whelan is, or should be, a thing from the past. Dickens himself would have been stretched to have described this character . Fagin was bad enough, but came around.
Dave Whelan is just some victorian capitalist who should be placed back in that era, but as a poor wretch.
