Tesco gets more revenue by opening 7 days a week If your cost base increases this has to be met. I'm happy to work on any days in the week. But not 7 days a week . If this is not funded with a fair market profit On top... Tesco is allowed to make a profit... Then it will not work! If you want to change and improve access It will not and never be cost neutral . We as a nation are struggling with debt . So to implement this we have to think out of the box. New income streams required I do not know the answers but what about Considering 1....charging insurance companies for all rta's 2....All sports clubs/ individuals having insurance for injuries Nhs bills the insurer 3.....All employers have to have injury at work Insurance These are just examples.... Use the money raised to reinvest in the desired Changes??? In the review lets hope they look to see if the added Costs equate to health benefits.. Convenience May not be affordable!
