Oh FFS and JC almighty – this is the most ridiculous thing I have heard all week. As an employer if I am going to hire someone it’s because I have a need. If I don’t have a need I’m not going to hire someone because of some silly pledge. This is just recording the people who INTEND to hire. It does not create one single job.

the naivety of some people is breathtaking.

    It is a good thing in my view, though i accept your basic argument that you only hire if you have a need to. What the campaign does highlight however is that we all benefit if companies hire – more people in work means higher demand for services, which leads to a virtous circle of more people being hired.

    Have to say I agree. CPL hiring 200 tech support people. Probably in their managed services division, it is not as if they are pushing the boat out and creating new jobs.
