Today Vinnie and many others have been made redundant from their employment with Birthdays Ltd. Clintons Cards the owner of Birthdays put the company into Administration on 20th May 2009. Loads of promises were made about keeping jobs and loads were broken.
Clintons exploited a loop hole in the law allowing them to shed millions of pounds in debt and then buy back a large percentage of Birthdays Ltd. Unfortunately it's the hard workers who put Clintons where they are today that have suffered!
So this is the second time in nine months that we have trodden the redundancy path. Only this time we're a little wiser.
