Shortage of accession of British fruit harvesters to thickness of limbs

According to a report by the British "Daily Telegraph" on June 6, a recruitment agency in the United Kingdom said that because of the shortage of fruit pickers, the British farmers had to accept any person with "healthy limbs."

Original title: Shortage of British fruit harvesters entering the threshold was reduced to "as long as the limbs are healthy"

The British "Labor Suppliers Association" said that more than half of the recruiters could not find fruit and vegetable pickers even during the "quiet" period of the first few months of this year. This leads to uncultivated fruit that stays rotted in the field.

According to reports, 99% of seasonal workers in UK farms are from Eastern Europe, many of them from Romania and Bulgaria.

The National Federation of Farmers in the United Kingdom stated that the number of seasonal workers coming to the UK last year decreased by 17%.

The head of a recruitment company in Kent, United Kingdom, found that the number of Romanians willing to work in the UK has dropped sharply since the British vote decided to withdraw from the European Union. She used the depreciation and uncertainty of the pound as a driver. 

She said: “In the past, people always lined up outside the office. Every day, 30 to 40 people came. This is very rare.” Her company had to expand its online recruitment and had to consider those who are fully equipped and willing to apply.

A spokesman for the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs of the United Kingdom said: "The department works closely with the Ministry of the Interior to ensure that once we leave the European Union, the labour needs of the agricultural sector can be met. We have always made it very clear that by December 2020, Employers in the agricultural and food processing industries will be free to recruit EU citizens to fill vacancies, and those who work in the UK will be able to stay in the UK afterwards."
