This proves people will complain about anything.  I know other benefits have been cut but discount card has gone from 1 card to 2 cards to 4 good savings over a year to 13 good savings over a year.
Most stores I know most folk dont have fri sat off.

Two discount cards / instead of one , and Double discount events are only given to boost falling sales figures and turnover for quarterly periods and year ending etc ,  you end up buying some things  with the alledged twenty per cent discount only to find that at the end of the double discount event they have  gone  on sale anyway at a reduced price if not cheaper ?. you have to realize that Tosco don't do anything for the benefit of the staff - its only for there benefit . :-X :-X

Will we still be getting our Christmas 'thank you' discount booklets or are they getting scrapped too?

I honestly don't see why Tesco doesn't go full Mike Ashley and just do zero hour contracts and living wage/minimum wage for those under 25, nobody will quit and the customers won't stop shopping.

I disagree, from what I can see in our place, Tesco have a massive problem retaining staff.  They keep employing all these youngsters and while some are really good, quite a few of them don't turn up for shifts, or phone in sick and a lot of them are late when they do turn up.  Let's face it, beyond the hourly rate, there isn't anything there for us, not unless you want to go into management.  No bonus, no performance related pay, no promotion, no incentive.  Zero hour, minimum wage isn't going to encourage anyone.  It's such a demoralizing company to work for.

Because to your disapointment Tesco work within a competitive market and as such will pay a certain rate and give benefits reflective of that market place and what they feel as required for the business overall.

I know I know you want Tesco to be the worst of the worst so you can come on here and feel even more self-righteous when condemning anyone that is in a manager role and on D. Lewis  8-)

Dave Lewis can easily give Boris Johnson a "gift" and magically a workfare program will appear, from which he can acquire shelf stackers paid for by H.M Taxpayer. There is no shortage of unemployed people or students that will apply to Tesco regardless of its pay package.

Pointless comment other than to reinforce your unhealthy obsession with D. Lewis and your hopeful desire for Tesco to reach the bottom of the pile.

You're not only not contributing any constructive argument to my comment that Tesco can indeed get away with offering worse terms and conditions due to the basic economic principle of supply and demand but also resorting to personal attacks.

The comment about taking people from the dole was that not done before by T or something similar until the press got hold of the story and the project was dropped, also i believe some years ago the T went to poland to get drivers for the hgvs as they were cheaper (this is what we were told by the other drivers that were left.)

It was, they and many others dropped out of the governments ideological scheme due to protests by a bunch of Guardian reading lefties, that still doesn't mean the whole exercise wasn't beneficial to the bottom line while in place though

Its how market looks like now.
15% discount is better but I think it's introduced to make our job more attractive.  On the other hand our core pay is too low so people will jump the ship if they can get 50p more p/h.

Every little penny helps.

Most people jump ship due to low hours on basic contracts and massively varying amounts of OT. I cant see a extra 5% discount 4 days a month making much of a difference

Just had a thought so we no longer get the paydays offer books, not the end of the world to be honest but an extra discount Monday to Thursday after payday, now it does make you wonder will the Xmas voucher books go the same way as the payday ones, given we now get the additional discount every pay period.

Every little helps.
