Who Are The Key Workers ?


Recommended Posts

Who are the key workers much muted by New Labour.

Are they the captains of industry, entrepreneaurs who bring billions of pounds and many millions of jobs to this nation.

Or are they the nurses that wipe grandma's botty when she is in hospital for a couple of days having fallen off her pouffe during a couple of glasses of whisky watching come dancing ?

As a rough guide, probably anybody who currently wants to move to Australia ;)

Actually, I think you may have a point!

Drivers & Cleaners - easily replaced at the cost of a few pedestrians or coffin-dodgers

Nursies&Firemen - not so easily replaced.

Hmmm. Must think about that!

The problem is that if you concentrate on what the Government would describe as "Key Workers" and take your eye off of the real key workers, that is those that are working to pay the wages of the Key Workers, then common sense tells you that you will run out of money.

The provision of public services appears to have taken over from the concept of a nation competing in a global economy, and earning a living.

Key Workers are occupations that even rich people see are needed!

"bloody hell, I need a doctor!" said the prime minister.

An old man once said to me that nuclear weapons did make the world safer - because it made the leaders of countries realise that their "home" would be destroyed if they wanted to play war games in far off countries.

Key Workers are those directly involved in the manufacture and export of product which increases the national wealth.

Oh thats engineers then. Only real ones though not plumbers, not electricians etc....

Firemen not so easily replaced.Funny how there are a hundred applicants for every job, probably the one profession that supply and demand doesn't count as far as fat wages are concerned.Whatever their unions do ,they deserve some credit for pulling off the impossible getting their members paid loads for playing snooker.

In war time we reserve the role of firemen to the pensioners at a time when firefighting is ten times as busy.All the young and strong are needed as soldiers.Guess what,we pay soldiers peanuts.

I assumed that key workers were those who were employed in the public sector at a rate insufficient to allow them to rent privately.

Eligible key workers would be the subset who also have no assets.

These are exactly the people you need to saddle with a mortgage ASAP - otherwise, without the threat of being made homeless, they may decide that it isn't worth their while to work at all.
