UK: Sainsbury confirms plans for 10,000 new jobs
Britain's second largest supermarket group J. Sainsbury Plc confirmed earlier today [Wednesday] that it aims to create over 10,000 new jobs during this year alone.

CEO Peter Davis is hoping that the programme, launched last April, will help the grocer gain ground from market leader Tesco Plc.
In a statement, Sainsbury claimed that with the new jobs, its workforce would tally 152,000.
