Should large companies recruit locally?
The Department of Employment and Learning announced that more than 200 new jobs would be created when a new Tesco opened in Newry on 6th June 2013. However, the Newry Times has been inundated by calls and e-mails claiming that Tesco's method of recruitment was unfair and inadequate.

Various statements were made by locals claiming that they and various other people they knew had been rejected without reaching the interview stage.

Should local economies be supported by local recruitment?

I would tend to favour the free market approach, let the employer recruit the best available.

However, In the case of supermarkets and particularly Tesco, they tend to have an awful lot of lobbying power over local & national politics, they have a record of bullying local councils, they receive subsidies from development agencies (local, central govt & European), and destroy local competition - so perhaps, in the case of Tesco at least, they should be forced to recruit locally.
