BBC don’t do grammars
The article starts: "One in five UK workers are fearful for their jobs, a survey has suggested. In the public sector, that figure rises to nearly one in three workers, the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) said..." And the BBC ignores the most basic rule of all - be consistent. In the title they say "One in five IS" and in the article they say "One in five ARE"
