Disabled Workers Laid Off
7:01am 16th August 2012
Thirty Cornish disabled workers are out of a job.
The Remploy factory in Penzance shuts its doors for the last time on Thursday after the government axed funding.
The Long Rock site will keep on a handful of staff to help switch factory equipment to other sites up country.
Rich Lumb from Cornwall Disabled People Against Cuts has warned finding work could be an uphill struggle. He said: "The pressure groups are there, the disabled people themselves are there. We're not going, we're staying and, at the end of the day, we'll kick it because it's a flaming disgrace what the elected government of this country is doing to weaker members of society.
"It's a crying shame. It's not just the monetary aspect, it's the social network, it's people's friends, it's the reason to get out of bed in the morning. It gives an extra in their lives which possibly wouldn't come in any other form."7:01am 16th August 2012
