READERS DISCUSS: Job cuts at Hastings before Christmas

HASTINGS Deering is set to slash 100 Central Queensland jobs.

Here are some comments posted by readers:

Terry Grant - Slash 100 Australian jobs, hire 150 457 visa workers.

Andrew Hunter - Blame the Mining Slump. No boom at the moment. No Boom no Ca$h.

Wally Schilling - Why doesn't that surprise you. They need to get rid of all the old wood, get rid of the people who don't add anything to the business. Too many managers and not enough real workers to add value to the business.

Michelle Wehmeier - Not right.

Roslyn Svensen - And Merry Christmas to you too.

Peter Veall - I know why there when so many HD vehicles were parked up at Richo Road today and many people milling about - another blow

Evelin Macaskill - Is that their way of saying merry Christmas.
