Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Jaguar Land Rover is cutting hundreds of jobs at its Solihull plant and giving hundreds more workers at its engine factory in Wolverhampton an early break for Christmas as it shifts production abroad and battles a slump in demand.

Around 200 jobs at the carmaker’s Solihull site are reported to be on the block, on top of 1,000 contract jobs that have already been axed, as production of its Discovery model is shifted to Slovakia

If you are a UK manufacturer whose major export market is the EU then you have to be nuts if you do not move production post Brexit to the EU!
JLR is no longer talking about hundreds of job cuts; now it is thousands
"Jaguar Land Rover to 'axe up to 5,000 jobs' to ward off the threat from Brexit, falling sales in China and a drop in demand for diesel cars."

Edit; Solihull voted 56% Leave, turkeys voting for Christmas!

Also layoffs planned for Wolverhampton plant, 62% voted Leave.
