It’s devastating news for Worthing that a large well established local employer (GSK) is sacking a third of its work force.
For a town that’s on its knees economically and very socially divided, it’s a disaster.
The council’s and the Chamber of Commerce’s aspirations of taking the town up-market (a London priced economy) has failed, and will always fail if 75 per cent of the residents have no disposable incomes.
Look around, empty pubs, restaurants and empty hotel chains tell the story.
