Where Are All These £30 An Hour Farm Picking Jobs? (Conspiracy / Strange)

by Jeff, Thursday, October 07, 2021, 23:49 (16 days ago)

All I keep hearing and reading from the mainstream news media is due to covid and "brexit" farmers can't find the staff to pick the crops and are having to pay £30 an hour to get the workforce

Can somebody post below links to these picking jobs that are paying £30 per hour because I've looked all over and I can't find these jobs paying that much.

I want to apply but the £30ph picking jobs only seem to exist in the media dreamworld.

All lies, they probably found one single case like that. How would they ever be making money paying those sort of wages.

If the pickers are all on thirty pounds an hour I think the farmers would be losing a lot of money.

One farm paid one person thirty quid to stay an extra hour more like. You would never have a shortage of workers in the fields if they were paying all of them thirty quid an hour :-roll

Pay your employees £30 per hour then at the end of the day sell your picked produce to Mr Tesco at a loss.

There will be a stipulation behind that wage like you alone have to pick three fields worth in a day to get that rate which would be an impossible task.

I bet the adverts don't outright say £30 per hour, they'll say something like 'potentially earn' or 'up to'.

I've emailed a few British farming and growers organisations that are named in the news articles to find out where all these £30 per hour picking jobs are that they keep harping on about and we will see what the reply is. If they can't tell me then it's a load of bollocks.
