business news in context, analysis with attitude

• The Daily Mail reports that a Muslim man who worked in a UK Tesco warehouse facility is suing the company, saying that the retailer forced him to carry cases of alcoholic beverages, which violated both his religious beliefs. The man quit his job, he says, when the warehouse would not acquiesce to his request for another assignment, and he now says that he was ”victimized and harassed.”

• In the UK, the Sunday Express reports that despite the economic crunch that is sweeping through the nation, Tesco plans to “press ahead with plans to create 30,000 jobs by February, up to 10,000 of which will be in the UK.”
