British Company Sacks 800 Employees Via Video Call

British shipping company P&O Ferries invoked condemnation for its action by firing 800 employees with the view of having them replaced with cheaper agency workers.

Employees were told via a video call to get off the ship as it was their final day of employment.

Some refused to leave their ships in protest and were forcibly removed.

P&O said it was a tough decision, but it would not be a viable business without the changes.

The government called the workers’ treatment wholly unacceptable.
