JOBS DRIVE FOR MORRISONS

WM MORRISON yesterday said it would create 7,000 jobs in 2009, exceeding its initial target by 40 per cent. Britain’s fourth largest grocery said it had reached its original target of 5,000 new jobs five months early and would now add an additional 2,000 posts. One-third of the new recruits will be in the 18 to 24 years age group, one of the hardest hit by rising unemployment.
