Remploy Jobs Fight
4:01pm 8th March 2012
Staff at a threatened Penzance factory pledge to fight plans to shut it.
More than 30 disabled workers at Remploy could lose their jobs.
It is because the government is cutting funding.
GMB rep Colin Grey reckons it's a slap in the face for people who want to work: "It's not just for us it's for future people. This government are totally callous and short-sighted because once Remploy's gone, it's gone. They should be using Remploy and make Remploy something to be proud of. We're proud of it".
