Brexit news: Furious cafe owner rages over cut in staff flow ‘English people are too lazy’ | United Kingdom | New

The furious business owner lamented the unwillingness of English workers to apply for jobs at his cafe because they are “too lazy”. Tottenham’s Gianni has erupted over the struggle businesses have faced since Brexit to fill vacancies while struggling to attract local workers to apply. Speaking to LBC, he said: “I can’t find staff to fill the positions. Since Covid I have struggled to find staff.

“Unfortunately, as an Englishman born in England but of Italian descent, the English are too lazy to do this kind of work.

“I have a cafe in Westminster, I have some of your presenters who come, a lot of MPs are customers who come.

“But English natives don’t want to do that kind of work – they want to do office work, work from home, 9am-5pm or 9am-4pm. Easy life, cushy jobs.”

When asked if Brexit further complicates the situation, Gianni noted that the end of freedom of movement and the implementation of new visa requirements, which exclude his company, made it more difficult to hire people. ’employees.

He continued: “Of course. And now the government is making it even harder for people to come here and apply for settlement and seek employment.

“I had a waitress come to see me, she had training, she had done everything, ‘can you start tomorrow?’ and she said, ‘I can’t start working, I don’t have any rules.’

“You look on the settlement site, I don’t qualify as an employee to help these people.

And night economy adviser Sacha Lord has called for visa rules to be relaxed to make it easier for entry-level international staff to enter.

Lord Lord said: “The right to work and live in the UK is now considerably more restricted for EU citizens.

“This is a challenge that is having a significant impact on employers and creating an unrelenting jobs deficit in a sector already ravaged by debt burdens and weak consumer spending.

“We have yet to see a realistic or pragmatic approach to stemming this recruitment crisis despite countless warnings from the hospitality industry that this crisis will not only materialize but worsen after Covid.”
