Jeremy Kyle delivered a furious rant on his TalkRADIO show and took aim at those “on the dole” who refuse to fill vacancies at farms across the UK. Some agriculture bosses claim they have struggled to fill vacancies as European labour has been shut off from them due to Brexit. Mr Kyle said this would be a perfect opportunity for thousands to get back into work on high wages but slammed the inaction from the public.

Speaking on TalkRADIO, Mr Kyle spoke with a caller who was angry about the labour shortages across the country.

The pair discussed how some fruit picking companies were offering attractive wages to encourage Brits to work on the farms but were struggling to fill vacancies.

Mr Kyle shared his assessment of the situation and said: “The Labour party last week wanted £15 as a minimum wage. 

“Maybe the fact that a thousand vacancies on £18-an-hour in Hull shows that for some they might think a job is beneath them.

“They think actually, and I don’t care if this upsets people, is it easier to sit at home and get your dole than to go to Hull where it’s a little bit cold and get £18-an-hour?

“Because where I come from you get off your backside, you’d get on a train and you’d go and earn 18 pounds.

“But even if that meant being away from your family.”

The radio presenter said no one had the motivation to go and work for a living if they were struggling and recalled something former Prime Minister David Cameron proposed.

Brexit 'clearly not' to blame for labour shortages says Rees-Mogg

Mr Kyle said he would back a scheme which took people on benefits and took them to these vacancies to work and get qualifications.

He argued it would give them the “motivation” to go back and work and resolve the labour shortages being experienced across the country.

Labour shortages have been seen in agriculture and logistics with thousands of healthy pigs being culled as there is no staff to pack them.

A shortage of HGV drivers has also caused disruptions to supply chains with some stores experiencing empty shelves.

Some turkey farmers also claim they also do not have the staff to pack meat.

A role at T H Clements and Son Ltd in Boston, Lincolnshire, will pay £30 per hour – which equates to £240 per day or £1,200 per week – to pick fruit due to the labour shortages.

The Government has opened up temporary visas for European workers to fill shortages over the next three months.

However, it was revealed that only 127 lorry drivers have applied to work in the UK out of 300 available visas.

Panic buying caused by some BP garages closing due to fuel shortages has also caused havoc on the roads as the Government was forced to involve the army to resolve the issue.
