Stop taking so much profit and create jobs instead!

I came across this article a few weeks back, but forgot to share it. Then I came across it again this weekend, so thought I’d share it with you now.

It’s about a businessman called John Elliott, and how he believes British businesses could reverse the decades of decline in manufacturing.

And from my point of view I agree with everything John says, and my favourite part of the article is this…

John Elliott is taking the very noble step of making lower profits in order to create jobs here rather than in cheaper locations, something most businesses probably wouldn’t be so patriotic about.

He’s not even interested in working out how much he could save by going abroad. I’m not going to do that. I don’t need to do it and it’s not right. Sometimes you’ve got to do things for the greater good. I don’t want to sound too high and mighty here, but sometimes … you’ve got to do what’s right rather than go for the last penny.

I couldn’t have said it better, the guy is a legend.
