TENS of thousands of minimum-wage food industry employees have been fortunate enough to be told they can work through Covid.
The employees, whether vaccinated or not, have been informed that they are so vital to the running of the UK that they can continue earning between £6.56 and £8.91 an hour no matter how ill they are.
Chicken-packing plant owner Roy Hobbs said: “We’ve saved our workers from the ravages of the pingdemic. I hope they realise how blessed they are.
“Now, even if they’ve properly got all the symptoms, they can continue standing at our conveyor belts and pass on Covid to their co-workers, their co-workers’ families etcetera, all with government sanction.
“It makes me proud to see them standing up for Britain, soldiering on through this nightmare on their zero-hours contracts and they’re fired if they miss a shift.”
Employee Jack Browne said: “Presumably I’m also allowed to go to five pubs and a nightclub tonight as a reward for being the hero this country needs.
“It’s leadership like this that has seen the UK come through the pandemic unscathed. Thanks Boris.”
