A Laid off Irish Construction worker turns an Entrepreneur and employs fellow jobless!!

Ireland with an unemployment rate of 14.9% (in 2011) is one of the recession-hit struggling/drowning economies of Europe. When the entire nation was experiencing such an unemployment rate, a laid off construction worker of Ireland did not sit still and wait to get state aid or employed. But rather, he started his own bakery called the Cherry Blossom Bakery and employs fellow jobless colleagues/construction workers!!
