😳 You are right, just skimmed it before 🙂 I read last week that tourist areas were at critical staffing levels in catering etc due to poor pay.

Oh, so there’s plenty of work around but low paid? OK, not a great tragedy but a problem for anyone who has overspent. Now, if one were to be receiving benefits would one be able to get a bar job as well? Would that be one of those black economy jobs?

Although terribly naughty, 😯 , I dare say it would tide many through a crisis. How long are benefits paid for and how much do they get?

I read about the US system in which benefits were paid for a maximum of 5 years through each individual’s working life. That seemed like a rather good plan. It would keep all butthe most complacent on their toes.
