Coronavirus threatens British workers’ lives


This 24 March 2020 video from Britain says about itself:

We will CLOSE Sports Direct! Health Secretary silences Mike Ashley’s money hunger during crisis

Tycoon Mike Ashley is under fire. As more people look to find ways of exercising while stuck indoors during the current health crisis, Mike Ashley’s Sports Direct has massively increased as string of prices. Internal documents seen by the PA news agency show prices of some indoor exercise gear have shot up as much as 67%.

Because the company operates a system of having “ticket” prices, followed by “reduced” stickers, it can be unclear what price a product was ever sold at.

Meanwhile Sports Direct workers today claim they feel their lives are ‘undervalued’ because they are still being made to work despite stores being closed to the public.

Sports Direct workers received an email suggesting that they are key workers as the nation fights health issues.

In the Commons, Health Secretary Matt Hancock has warned he will close the Sports Direct shops as they are not essential.

Clothing retailers condemned for keeping crowded warehouses in operation

UNIONS and Labour strongly condemned fashion retailers today for keeping crowded warehouses open during the coronavirus crisis.

Shadow chancellor John McDonnell said that “non-essential” businesses should be shut by the government and “named and shamed” by the media if they continue operating during the lockdown.

Up to 4,000 people are still working at the Sports Direct warehouse in Derbyshire, despite founder and chief executive Mike Ashley being forced to abandon plans to keep his high-street shops open following a public backlash.
