The vast majority of people in the resources sector have recently, and continue to be affected by redundancies. We don’t know anyone who has not been made redundant (we have many friends in the resources industry as we have been in the industry for around 20 years). The suffering of relocation that come as a consequence of redundancy, especially on women and children, is horrible. People in this sector are forced to move gain work. I really feel for our friends, colleagues, and others currently looking for work and suitable locations to move their families to. It’s about time the government took away the “company restructure” redundancy loophole for this sector. It is being abused by the companies and is coursing so much pain and suffering to hard working individuals and their families.
