Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

View Post
An article from The Economist.

Now, seriously. This is ridiculous. Countries are in quarantine and fight against the pandemic and keep people in their homes and closed the schools, but the battle on seasonal workers is so big and they outbid each other in a crazy race to bring people because their own population refuses to do these jobs.

All these lockdowns and quarantines and the medical staff having to treat the infected when they'll return - I'm sure some of them will die or get infected and send back home.

This thing has compromised the idea of European Union.
What's the alternative. You'd have to pay Brits, Dutch, Swiss, Germans etc. a lot to pick fruit, and they'd do a much worse job. There probably aren't enough local unemployed in commutable distance.

I guess the alternative is having less, much more expensive fruit.
