    They get subsidised to employ foreign workers

  7. Colin Smith on December 16, 2020 at 9:55 pm

  8. david lamont on December 16, 2020 at 9:55 pm

    The government asked for 250000 volunteers to work as key workers 500000 people volunteered and you these people actually expect us to believe they couldn’t get any one to pick fruit this is a complete joke

  9. Martial Arts UK on December 16, 2020 at 9:56 pm

  10. manny T on December 16, 2020 at 9:56 pm

  11. Chris b on December 16, 2020 at 9:57 pm

  12. Merde-och Media on December 16, 2020 at 10:00 pm

    Pay proper wages then and you might get some Brits on board.

  13. Robert ottewell on December 16, 2020 at 10:01 pm

    If they paid the Englishman a decent wage they wouldn’t have to rely on foreign workers. The Farmers have got themselves to blame

  16. Ron Crossley on December 16, 2020 at 10:03 pm

    Get our own unemployed to pick the fruit. The farmers are laughing at the subsidies they get.? Pay our own folk a decent wage and we wouldn’t need foreign labour. At least the earnings would stay in this country instead of getting sent abroad to fund a shack building scheme in Eastern Europe.?

  17. Samul samuelson on December 16, 2020 at 10:03 pm

    White South African most of them are farmers, why the British government does not give them citizenship . In the United States, there are a large number of poor white people of the British origin, why the British government does not give them citizenship. These immigrants are much more better than Iranian, Afghan, and Iraqi immigrants.

  18. Dean Rae on December 16, 2020 at 10:03 pm

    I have a great idea ALL people in britain claiming BENEFITS should be working for there handouts if they refuse STOP there benefits SIMPLE AS THAT. SCROUNGERS should work for there money. We don’t need foreigners.

  19. John Chin on December 16, 2020 at 10:04 pm

    Hello im john from malaysian
    I would like to work at uk picking fruits.

  20. Keep it PG on December 16, 2020 at 10:08 pm

    I did this job 10 years ago when I arrive in uk , they pay a pittance, you need to wake up very early be on your feet all day and you are not pay p/ hour but p/ boxe or units , I make less then 30 pounds for 8 to 10 hours of work in one day that was also my last . I only but fruits or vegetables from Spain I’m not to contribute this English farmers to became rich with the misery of others . They even now pay The flights of Romanians that came here to pick fruit , I think they don’t even earn the minimum wage is why they don’t give jobs to local people , is a Disgrace

  21. 95winston on December 16, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    What a stupid farm owner that first one was …. you voted for it lump it

  22. Jannette Samuel on December 16, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    Why do reporters keep asking about Brexit. They hope to infuence those who are listning. Just report on the subject . Let the listener make up their own minds.

  23. Reginaldo Oliveira on December 16, 2020 at 10:10 pm

    Where to apply for this jobs?

  24. JJ on December 16, 2020 at 10:11 pm

    This is the same as the building industry. Because people are paying less, thinking they can get a foreign worker in for cheaper, the quality of tradesman has gone down.

  25. Jake Stewart on December 16, 2020 at 10:15 pm

    Oh no where are the Europeans, i remember .Farage will pick it for you?

  26. harryman01 on December 16, 2020 at 10:16 pm

    Lol that idiot is claiming that free movement of people will continue

    Haha haha, the tories has stooped this for all of Us

    This idiot moron, also vote for his own demise

  27. Miss S on December 16, 2020 at 10:17 pm

    This is a crock. I tried all the links, googled jobs picking fruit as we will do this happily for minimum wage and guess what?? The links are either broken, or they ‘have enough staff’

  28. N B on December 16, 2020 at 10:18 pm

    Very strange as I never see any fruit picking jobs at £15 p/h advertised on total jobs or reeds etc. Why is that. The British don’t want the job because we all assume it’s minimum wage. IF THATS CHANGED THEN TELL PEOPLE DUMB ARSES

  29. John Newman on December 16, 2020 at 10:20 pm

    The farmers/land owners are getting richer &richer they are a disgrace this is slavery pay more for the BRITISH workers let there food rot

  30. andrew hubbard on December 16, 2020 at 10:22 pm

    There lots of British workers looking to do this job but the fruit pickers are not interested because they are wanting cheap labour from Eastern Europe

  31. Nick on December 16, 2020 at 10:24 pm

    Did that farmer just say that he voted for Brexit but still wants free movement? 🤔
