not too sure if this post is appropriate here. just read the news here:
http://www.forbes.com/markets/feeds/afx/2005/05/11/afx2016760.html

it says Oly is cutting about 4000 jobs worldwide to return to profitability. the global workforce is now 30,000 & after this restructuring, 26,000.


sorry, i have to Off-Topic a little here:
by looking at the number of employee from this eg, u can see 30,000 is a huge number & capable of world wide employment or deployment for a MNC. i can't help but ask myself what was our GUYS up there thinking when they say the 2 casinos & integrated resorts can create 30,000 jobs locally. dun know if our airport or CAAS has more than 10,000 employees & they claim this IR thing can create these many jobs. :rolleyes:

whats your take fellow CSers?

Foreign Talent? oh ya, never thot of that. & also not forgetting the top positions will be help by some expat from maybe Las Vegas.

but seriously, can the 2 IRs create that many jobs for local people even incl those cleaners & sweepers? :eek:

Direct employment (that means employed by casinos alone) could be only 10,000. But indirectly employment (ripple effect, eg retail, entertainments, properties, other tourism-related industries etc) may be 20,000. Thus add up together, 30,000.

not really related. service oriented industry require more people. and it's going to be a 24 hour biz right which would mean 3 shifts of pple at least.

although sounds very reasonable but the ripple efx like very vague leh. can be anything & any number, eg, SIA needs to recruit more people cos more tourist coming to s'pore. then SBS & MRT also need to recruit more people cos of the increase in traffic, thus increase train/bus freq, etc.

i like the way ahbeng breaks it down. :bsmilie: :bsmilie:

as for mpenza, although the casinos run 24hrs, but my experience is that u still dun need that many people to do it. eg, SIA & CAAS. they run 24hrs with almost everyone doing shift but they dun have that many staff. thats why i m very skeptical by the estimated no. of jobs that can be created. i guess its another of those beautiful pics the GUYS wanted to paint us to justify the approval.

anyway, i also sent in my FL36 flash for servicing & i believe the guys at Oly will still do a professional job despite this disturbing news. also heard that it affected 2 china factories the most. lets hope our Oly here escape this axe. :sweat:

now i can see the ripple efx. loan sharks need to buy more pig head, chicken blood, etc. they also need paint (to splash on doors) & spray cans (O$P$). suppliers need to stock up more inventories & also new suppliers will pop out cos there's a bigger marjet now. :bsmilie:

then the gamblers kena whack by loan shark assistant need to see dr. so dr revenue from medication also goes up. medication suppliers also need to hire more workers to keep up with the demand. :bsmilie:

the list goes on.... :sweat: & this can easily bring full employment to the nation & not just 30,000 jobs only. :p
