People on benefits should pick fruit and veg

Do you agree?

Original report here.

Yesterday as the IFS report tells us that the "poor" are worse affected than the "rich" given the new financial squeezes, our minds turned to the thousands needed to pick fruit and veg.

People complain that there are no jobs, yet thousands are recruited -- need to be recruited -- from overseas to fill these posts.

I have an East European chap working on my bathroom. He's very conscientious, very thorough, very diligent. And so polite. He didn't even dare put his radio on because I have mine on. Until I went out to do a shop.

No wonder this well-known local firm of bathroom specialists employ him.
