Bitter coffee; 1701 applicants for 8 jobs

Coffee cups Caffe Nero Costa StarbucksThe state of things in the UK seem to be going from bad to worse. Costa Coffee (a British coffee chain) is opening up another branch which has created 8 jobs (3 full-time and 5 par-time) and so far they have received over 1700 applications.

Costa said they were shocked at the high number of applicants, it’s unclear why they are shocked, don’t they read the news? Or maybe from the bubble of the elite they are blissfully unaware of the plight of the working class… or maybe they just don’t care.

The applicants are said to include people vastly over qualified for the job such as former retail managers with years of experience and university graduates.

Sales at Costa have risen 7.1% since a boycott of US coffee chain Starbucks took place for not paying any corporation tax in the UK since 2009 and the UK’s Caffè Nero who didn’t pay any tax last year despite profits of almost £40m.

For a better tasting coffee, try an independent café.
