JJB Warehouse
 JJB Warehouse   by Dan Highton  (Canon EOS 500D)
The car park is half empty as many people unfortunately lost their jobs at this once giant sports business.

I bet all the minimum wage earning Wigan worker who where always complaining about Mr Dave Whelan wished he still owned JJB


Comment by Skeets on 7th November 2012 at 07:21
......and your point is? Dan.


Comment by Dan on 7th November 2012 at 08:31
my point is that it's a photo from around Wigan.... isn't that what this is all about??


Comment by Bill on 7th November 2012 at 13:06
Biggest rip-off going is the minimum wage. It stops folk asking for more. Or for what they're worth.
Clever way of making folk think they're getting better pay.


Comment by Al.C. on 7th November 2012 at 13:48
I was told Dave Whelan used to put his old suits up for sale in the warehouse, does anybody know if that is true?


Comment by Linda on 7th November 2012 at 14:30
Skeets, this site is about pictures from around Wigan, not about making 'points'. Good pic, Dan. A nice change from Haigh Hall but a sorry story about a company that once employed many Wiganers.


Comment by Skeets on 7th November 2012 at 15:17
Yes Linda I agree with you, nice Wigan picture, nice perspective but a cynical comment in the caption.


Comment by Garry on 7th November 2012 at 15:29
Is it half empty or half full!


Comment by Rev David Long on 7th November 2012 at 19:50
Skeets - 'cynical'? Not if it's factual. 'Sic transit gloria mundi'.
Bill - you're right. Minimum wage has become optimum wage for too many - especially care workers.


Comment by Mick on 7th November 2012 at 20:05
Bill if you owned a business and employed staff how much more than what you had to give them would you give.


Comment by Lizzie down under on 7th November 2012 at 20:59

Comment by Ernest Pyke on 7th November 2012 at 22:23
