Default Wetherspoons boss Tim Martin needs EU workers to tackle the shortage of bar staff






It seems some UK workers do not want
to return to their jobs.

I guess it makes sense an unscrupulous capitalist would support the EU. Birds of a feather and all that.

Serves him right for treating his staff so badly during the pandemic. I guess they took his advice to go elsewhere and are staying now as they get treated better?

No, he was a MASSIVE Brexit-buddy gammon and now he's like "Oh wait a minute, half of my staff were from Europe... come back! Waaaahhh!!"

It's hilarious. Hope they go under, ****ing ****hole.

I didn't realise that, I'd have assumed someone who mistreats their staff and only cares about the bottom line would have been all for the advantages the EU provides to such people. I guess he's reaping what he sowed either way

They haven't no.
However customers to his establishments help line his pockets further.
So I choose not to that.

He was a Brexit supporter

that said the pandemic is supposed to have hit young people in the UK the most workwise, so not sure why there is a shortage of workers?

supporting Brexit never meant no immigration from the EU

it definitely wanted no illegal immigration and better controls on immigration

surely everyone on TIBB wants that?

it doesn't really matter if the guy is a brexit supporter or not, he is a complete ass hole. Very unpleasant person, and for him it's very much a case of you reap what you sow

If he treat his staff the way they deserved then he might find a big difference.
Decent hours for a decent wage, not too much to ask for surely.

If you pay someone minimum wage that’s how much they are valued as a person by all companies.

So what if you leave you can be replaced for under a tenner.
