Velma Posted May 19, 2020 Share Posted May 19, 2020 (edited) Prince Charles has urged millions of furloughed Brits to sign up for “unglamorous” temporary jobs picking fruit and veg over the summer to help guarantee the UK’s food supply, the Prince of Wales admits it will be a “challenging” and “hard graft” for many people who are used to office jobs. But he says signing up is “of the utmost importance” to the national effort to beat the coronavirus pandemic. And he compares the Pick for Britain campaign to the Land Army that helped harvest crops during World War Two to feed the nation. The Pick for Britain campaign wants some of the 7.5 million employees who have been laid off on to the Government’s wage support scheme during the crisis to sign up to the scheme, which enables them to top-up their furloughed wage. Meanwhile, as the nation is facing recession, his mother,, Mrs. Windsor has instructed a team of builders to resume work on the £369 million refurbishment of Buckingham Palace now that the Government has eased lockdown measures. Glad to know the Aristocracy are still "winning" while the unemployed "pick for victory." Edited May 19, 2020 by Velma Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
