What do people do?

Ericsson are closing down their Ansty R&D site with the loss of 800 high tech jobs – this is a huge blow to the city and marks to the end of the telecoms equipment making site of GEC that has been in Coventry since the early 1920s. Ericsson bought the division when they purchased Marconi. The rest of Marconi is now called Telent and based in Warwick.

Coventry has lost 18,000 private sector jobs in the last decade and is now reliant on the public sector.
