Job cuts to follow German elections

FT.com / Europe - Job cuts to follow German elections.

Germany faces a potential wave of corporate restructurings, some of its top managers say, because companies have deferred job cuts to help ensure the re-election of a business-friendly government at next month’s federal elections.

Senior managers and institutional investors say there has been an implicit “pact” not to announce big job cuts ahead of the September 27 ballot.

You can bet they'll do the same for the Tories here.
