This old chestnut

In the real world, there are jobs the locals will not do regardless of the level of payment.
Everyone knows that British people are genetically unable to pick fruits. It's just not in their blood.

Not true. Not if you tie their benefits to actually working for at least part of those money. Why bring foreign workforce when you have so many unemployed? Who picked up the crops before the '90s?



This.

They don't want to pick "mushrooms", do something else then. You can get those mushrooms from somewhere else, somewhere where people don't think any work is beneath them.
Who picked British fruit and veg before migrant workers?

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

Good article. Seems to hit the nail on the head.

many British people simply do not want to carry out seasonal labour because incentives for doing so are very low. Changes in the composition of rural populations mean that areas of high unemployment are often located at significant distances from the farms offering work. Seasonal jobs are also known to be low-paid, hard work, with long hours, and are often associated with unfavourable conditions and diminished social status.

Not really. It fails to address the basic issue in UK agriculture - the lack of automation and land ownership. For forty years the EU has pumped vast amounts of money into farming, but unlike most EU farmers, UK farmers did not reap the full benefits of it because in the UK large tracts of farming land is not owned by the farmers that farm it. And many of the benefits were based on ownership, on the assumption that the farmers owned the land.

The result is that UK farmers neither had the money nor the motivation to automate and so the processes are very manual - hence the need for labour.

And on the retail side, of course there is the question of price, how much more are UK households will to pay for farm produce - 10%, 20%, 30%....

As for forcing the unemployed to do it, that is a non starter as there are no votes in it... on top of which, contrary to what some people believe it is not an easy task - it's hard work and if not done properly then you risk loosing a large portion of the crop as it will deteriorate while in storage - remember Captain Boycott...

Without very serious reform, there is not going to be any other option but to bring in cheap labour.

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

How do you relate automation with 3 million ++++ unemployed. When we have automated more or less everything- what will you do with the majority of people? Should we then move to a minimum wage for all?

The economy is not a zero sum game. New opportunities are opening all the time . Humanity has survived the agricultural revolution which automated away jobs in agriculture, the industrial revolution which automated away vast chunks of artisanal industry etc. Yet today most people somehow still have jobs and are on average better off than back then .

First of all, thank you for enlightening me. Your post is the most interesting one because it looks like you know more about agriculture and particularly about the British agriculture. I was so ignorant I didn't even know some countries have...agriculture. Before you're getting upset let me tell you that I'm actually kidding and I mean "agriculture to speak of". I am still surprised by the fact that they got pumped so many funds into from the EU. Land? Nada. Climate? Nada. Workforce? Nada. I thought France, Italy and Spain were the winners in this race of getting funds for agriculture.

I can imagine how the correspondence between farmers and the EU bureaucrats looked like:
"Dear Madam/Sir,

I would kindly like to inform you that we have basically nothing to show to you for the moment, but please give us those dam' money and we'll multiply them. "
Whereas other countries with significant agricultural potential and land ownership got...the same "nada". Because, you know - the crisis. Or something.

I see what these countries are doing as we speak. I don't think this is a way to progress or to have stable economies. Everyone is depending on imported labour to launch their economies again. Soon you'll discover that the locals can't work/don't have experience in constructions once construction sites will open up again. Or - you name it, everything that implies more physical work. What are they doing in the meantime - because the money exist - are they learning to program computers? Take care of the sick in hospitals? No, you import those too. A lot of them.

I don't think this economic model will survive tbh. You either produce something locally, with your own local workforce (mostly) or just keep getting in debts deeper and deeper to pay all the unemployed to stay home while you import new people every year, whom you also keep blaming that are coming to take the locals' jobs. And start some wars for resources. That's insane. That's not economy. Everything will collapse again if they keep going into this direction.

What will be the next hipster idea of a label "Produced in X country by the X people."

Edit: I am exaggerating and oversimplifying, of course....of course. I do believe some things are simply wrong.

Exactly this! Blacksmiths became mechanics, chimney sweeps became heating fitters, humanity adapts. Always has, always will!

This is why I am so opposed to the idea of a “Universal Basic Income” as it only serves to create two classes- masters and servants. A Universal Basic Income would only be enough to keep people clothed, fed and housed, nothing more. History tells us the only place that has ever worked was on the cotton plantations!

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

Don't forget that most farms are not easily accesssible by public transport. Even if it is, most public transport likely doesn't start early enough to be helpful. Also there's the question of minimum wage, working conditions and, as been said, time to train in a skilled job. There are quite a lot of interesting debates about this on Twitter et al: folk who have applied and been turned down for (presumably) lack of experience in the, er, field. No pun intended.

That's not to say there aren't some lazy scrotes out there but I don't think it's fair to assume someone is lazy because they don't want to/aren't suited to pick fruit. I know i couldn't do it: my back wouldn't cope, and hayfever would floor me.

True, but transportation for workers can be organised. It's a myth that foreign workers have stronger backs. They usually have long term problems which they treat back home. In a system they didn't pay contributions to. Some of them come back with cash that local doctors and nurses wouldn't even dream of.
They're faster and know what to do because have done it for many seasons. Not everyone comes from this field of work (agriculture) actually. It's a way to supplement their income. I really don't underestimate this work, but everyone who is physically able can learn that.

They're veery motivated because the more and faster they work, the more money they get. If the employer is honest. Only then. If you go back home with 5k in cash after a good season you can do a lot of stuff with that amount - fix the roof, buy the kids computers etc.

Oh I agree. I picked strawberries for a few weeks once (am not terribly efficient) and my OH did several seasons while at Uni i believe, but training was built in. A bit, anyway, and I suppose the situation as it is now hasn't got capacity for training new staff built in. (My back wasn't always crap btw and I was in no way suggesting that "foreign workers have stronger backs! ... but an accident and 2 kids later and it's not brilliant).

Yes and ...............NO!

Those who are given a good start, or those who are bright and enterprising, those who have all 3 - they will always do well. But many just do not have the ability, and are not given the chance either to get the kind of education that will support them in that direction. Not every labourer or worker will find an opening in this 'brave' new world. 3 million at the moment in the UK - and as more and more jobs become automated, in the little industry we have left, in manufaturing, retail, agriculture, etc, etc, etc - that number will rise. Are you really saying this is not likely to lead to civil unrest. Go and spend a few months in Jburg and see for yourself.

The problem in Jburg is not automation and it is not lack of enterprise but it is a government that peddles the myth that the successful are to blame for the lack of success in others, and seeks to punish them accordingly.

There will always be people who need more help, more hand holding and more encouragement than others . But to be able to help them in a sustainable manner you need an economy that is strong enough to bear the taxation you need to subject it to . The economy needs to be nurtured and encouraged so that it is able to produce the surplus you need for social projects . Bildung your politics on the claim that those who are successful are evil is not contributing to such a climate

One thing is for sure, now at last the UK will get a decent house price crash.
Brexit was already going to cause issues, but now the global recession ( actually predicted a depression ) and the death of so many companies, and the verticle drop off in tourism, combined with the financial fall out from Covid19, will take a heavy toll.

Yes. The global "business" model will fail. Please enlighten me because I didn't study economics, what would you call this economic model we're seeing now? I mean, it's definitely not liberal capitalism or economic liberalism or whatever. It's a regression in the past of humanity if you ask me.

It will fail. Let meritocracy begin.

A lot of QE will keep prices up to a significant degree.

You of course totally misinterpreted what I was saying. I never mentionned automation re Jburg- but what happens to a society when wealth and jobs are only for a very small minority. And how some who need more help often are those who were never given adequate support from childbirth- and no suitable education and training. In the end, everyone suffers- those who 'have' live behind electrified fences with 'trespassers will be shot' signs - and cannot leave the house for a walk, to play, etc- unless in very defined guarded areas.
This is not a life I want for me and certainly not for my children and grandchildren.

The question was - when more and more jobs are automated, factories, retail, agriculture, etc, etc- and only a minority have jobs and an income - what happens to those for whom there are NO jobs left at their 'level' - level of education, but also level of intelligence and creativity. Some will rise and rise out of the ashes, and do extremely well. It is possible, I have seen it with my own eyes. For sure.

And the rest? What do you do with them? You can say you don't care, that it is their problem, that they should 'get on their bike' (remember Tebutt?) ... and fair enough. But one day, and it has happened before in many parts of the world - they will rise and it will turn nasty, nasty indeed. When the pendulum swings too far, it comes back at force, with a vengeance. So even if you are a selfish bar stewart - and it is your right - it will come back and smack you right between the eyes. HARD.
