      Thanks to their short quality, you won’t even have to wait long!

      Unfortunately my Shark vacuum is going strong for its 9th year… Supposedly they are shot now too since Ninja is going down consumerism.

    Dyson has always been trash tier overpriced products. They’ve been riding a wave of hype forever. Fuck them cunts.

      Not always. They’ve been trash since James “The Brexit Cunt” moved all his production from the UK to Malaysia or someplace just so he could drop the quality while increasing the profits

      You’d have to be soft in the fucking head to pay the same amount for a badly made fan as a fully functional A/C unit

        They were trash when they were in the UK and trash after they moved. Brexit didn’t change that apart from giving us another reason to disapprove of their products.

    If they can sell a $650 desk lamp they can keep these people employed.

    Fuck Dyson and any other company that lays off workers in any situation that’s not literally the last option before literal collapse and failure.

      The real sin is that they could charge $65 for that same lamp, still make a profit, and make up the difference via volume sales, if their product is good enough. But we all know what’s really going on here so there’s no point in trying to convince them to be smart about it when they can be greedy instead.

        Premium lower volume items is a perfectly fine business model.

    Well maybe if they didn’t overprice their merchandise of goddamn much more people would buy it and they’d stay in business. It’s a shame really, their stuff is really cool. I would totally buy a Dyson fan and probably a vacuum cleaner, except that I can get cheaper that does just as good a job for significantly less. It’s sad that instead of buying one good quality piece of equipment I have to buy an occasionally replace cheap crap, just because the company who makes the good stuff refuses to lower their profit margin. After all they must have infinite growth.

    This is the best summary I could come up with:


    About 1,000 UK jobs are at risk at Dyson as part of a global restructure.The firm, best known for the invention of the bag-less vacuum cleaner, made the announcement in response to competition in global markets.The move would ensure Dyson is “prepared for the future”, CEO Hanno Kirner said, adding it will be supporting those at risk of redundancy.Dyson has 3,500 UK employees and offices in Wiltshire, Bristol and London.

    Mr Kirner said the company operates in “increasingly fierce and competitive global markets” and it needs to be “entrepreneurial and agile”.“Decisions which impact close and talented colleagues are always incredibly painful.

    "Those whose roles are at risk of redundancy as a result of the proposals will be supported through the process,” Mr Kirner added.Wiltshire Council leader Richard Clewer said the council would do all it could to support those impacted during “an uncertain time”.Mr Clewer, who is also councillor responsible for economic development, said he was “extremely sorry to hear” of the announcement, adding that many Dyson workers were based in Wiltshire.

    During the coronavirus pandemic, the firm cut 600 jobs in the UK and a further 300 worldwide, saying people were changing how they bought products.

    Previously, the billionaire had accused the government of having a “stupid” and “short-sighted” approach to the economy and business in the UK.He said growth had “become a dirty word” during Rishi Sunak’s premiership.Sir James was a firm supporter of Brexit saying it had given the UK its “freedom of spirit” back.He faced criticism for moving the firm’s global headquarters to Singapore in 2019.

    In January he donated £6m to fund a Malmesbury Primary School and had announced plans to invest £100m in a new research and development hub in central Bristol.
