Brits offer Croats farm jobs

Croatian Times

British farmers have called upon Croats to work their fields picking fruit and veg.

According to Poslovni Dnevnik, some 20,000 additional season workers are needed in the UK and farmers there have said that when Croatia joins the EU in July they will have jobs waiting for them.

The National Farmers Union (NFU) said it believed Croat workers could help efficiently and added that many unemployed Brits do not want to move from cities to farms.

    The truth is UK workers do not want these jobs as they are better of claiming benefits and the work ethic is no longer present in the younger generations to take these jobs Other nationals take these jobs because its a job and they want to work, even on £6 per hour its a reasonable wage and much higher than benefits in their own country

    The truth is British workers dont want those jobs beacuse the pay is so low. Thats why most of the workers are Polish
