Gene Kerrigan: Clerys is not a department store it's an opportunity
The laws that allowed speculators act brutally towards the staff didn't just happen
At the bottom of the statement stuck on the front window of Clerys, it says, "unused gift vouchers will not be redeemed".
There's no, "We're sorry that we are unable . . ." There's no, "We regret it is not possible . . ."
There's just: Yeah, we got that money, we've made the voucher useless, but you're not getting your money back - bugger off, now, loser. Or words to that effect.
