Amid uncertainties over Brexit, British car manufacturer Jaguar Land Rover has announced its plan to cut 4,500 jobs.
The company has cited a slump in demand for diesel cars, sales slowdown in China and the developments related to Brexit as the reasons.

As much as i feel sad for those that lose their jobs...in the end its just about profits. Knownone ever talks about the greed of big business that drives these boom and bust cycles.perhaps its better working in small industry where the CEOs are not banking 10s of millions a year? Oh and by the way what about all the redundancy packages? I doubt very much anyone working for jaguar even knows what suffering really means!

Inspite of bad trade deal with the EU, make EV vehicles only, petrol will soon be forgotten. Evolve and think about our planet at the same time.

Trump said trade wars were easy to win! China is the largest and most powerful country in the world. They must feel sorry for the USA, because they could step right up and take this country from right under the Russians, who seem to be who trump sold us to.

Jaguar Land Rover vehicles are not reliable but with premium price. UK labour is too expensive, move to East Europe is a good choice. BTW, many JLR manufacture workers are from East Europe.

Jaguar Land Rover is to cut 4,500 jobs - most of them in the Midlands - as it looks to save £2.5 billion.

The firm is blaming falling demand in China, the decline in diesel vehicle sales and the uncertainty around Brexit.

Most of the cuts are expected to be in the UK and will be made over the next 18 months.

There has also been some good news for the workforce and the region, as the company announced further investment in the production of electric vehicles.
