MORE than 100 bar workers’ jobs are in jeopardy after a large hospitality employer in Manchester went into liquidation on Tuesday.
Some 125 people were thrown out of work when 11 bars and restaurants across the city closed down without warning, following the collapse of hospitality group Mark Andrew Developments (MAD).
The company ran venues across the Northern Quarter area of Manchester, such as Tusk, Rosylee and Hula, and owned a string of establishments in the suburbs of Heaton Moor and West Didsbury.
Former staff have taken to social media to seek work.
Labour councillor Sam Wheeler, whose ward includes the Northern Quarter, told the Morning Star newspaper: “This is the nature of insecure, un-unionised work in much of Manchester’s hospitality sector. Workers who have been loyal to a company for years have lost their jobs because of failings elsewhere.
“Now, in the run-up to Christmas, 125 more Mancunians are now unemployed.
“We need to question the kind of economy we are creating here.”
