It Takes a Lot of Skill to Be this Unskilled

The post-Brexit plans have been revealed, and along with the plans came worries that it could have a negative effect on the Hospitality Industry, with Nicola Sturgeon calling the system “devastating”.
It causes caution as there is no obvious route for the workers under this new system, with the Government confirming that there’ll be no alternative route for “low-skilled” workers, as you can see below:
But it brings up a lot of questions about how the Government views our industry workers.
With this plan in place, it’s said that around 3.4 million EU citizens are living in the UK, and most are deemed unskilled or low-skilled workers.
The hospitality industry is known for relying on EU labour and has started facing shortages according to UKHospitality; meaning that the proposals could lead to business closures.
But when you have to stand on your feet for a 10+ hour bar shift, planning menus and making drinks, changing 50 bed sheets in an hour, cooking for a huge party – it definitely takes skill to be that unskilled. *Rolls eyes*
Still sceptical? We’ve got some blogs that may help with that!

So, in a time that puts down the skills and incredible work ethic of those in hospitality, let’s celebrate them instead, because this is a pretty great place to be, and we won’t go down without making some noise.
