Reader feedback: Las Vegas style help

Re: Lenovo to employ 340 people at technical centre, Volume 12, Number 16, April 24 - April 30, 2006

Meanwhile it seems British workers should be satisfied with the alternative employment arrangements planned for them when faced with these massive redundancies - jobs in the proposed Las Vegas style "super casinos".
