Losing "ambiance" because of brexit?

The hospitality industry is facing a staffing crisis as restaurants and pubs say that up to a quarter of those employed before the Covid-19 pandemic will not return.

Pubs and restaurateurs agree that there is a particular challenge in the south-east of England and London as a lack of supply of skilled people from the EU, post-Brexit, is causing issues with hiring staff, especially in the kitchen. More than 30% of hospitality workers across the UK are thought to have come from Europe pre-Brexit but that rises to more than half of those employed in London.

The difficulties come despite there being 28% fewer people working in hospitality this month compared with a year ago, according to the technology company Fourth. Just under 35% of new starters in the first quarter of 2021 came from the EU, compared with almost half in 2019.

We have the same problems with a shortage of workers, too.

I suspect the problem is much more attributable to the pandemic.

Hi

We have a double whammy.

Many have gone home due to the pandemic, Brexit means they are not coming back.

Costs are rising.

Re: Losing "ambiance" because of brexit?

Is Solly suggesting that we in the UK might soon be in the position of having more jobs available than there are people to fill them?
Oh that nasty Brexit, eh Solly?

That could be seen as good news as it opens new job opportunities, should the pandemic situation allow it.
Are there news of lots of people being trained/educated for working in the hospitality industrie? And are there enough applicants so fill the gap?

Oh yes zappy, like in the orchards where fruit is rotting on the trees in the absence of imported labour.

No need. In the age group of zappy and me civility and courtesy are ingrained. He (living in the UK) can start a new career in this booming business!

Poor Solly.

In your ignorance elsewhere in one thread you're trying to say that companies are shedding workers and here you're saying there aren't enough workers.


You've just answered your own question and you don't even recognize it.



Oh and as for all this fruit supposedly rotting on trees: where exactly?
There's no shortages in our shops either - of BRITISH apples.
Which you would know if you actually lived here instead of spamming the forums from afar.

Getting desperate dear friend?

One third of UK fruit and vegetables are imported from climate-vulnerable countries and this is on the rise https://www.lshtm.ac.uk/newsevents/n...able-countries

See?
I was talking about BRITISH apples.
Do keep up.
And we will all note that your "rotting on trees" effort was another lie since you can't back up what you said and instead waffle on about EU imports!
Which isn't what we're talking about.
Silly Solly.
