Prince Charles Suggests Those Out Of Work Consider A Job Picking Fruits And Vegetables, Receives Backlash

Prince Charles is receiving backlash this week after promoting a campaign calling for people who have been furloughed from their jobs amid the COVID-19 pandemic to pick fruits and vegetables.

Prince Charles appeared in a video on the Clarence House Twitter page in support for the "Pick for Britain" campaign, a UK government initiative which seeks to find people work on produce farms, particularly those who are furloughed. The UK is currently facing a labor shortage at fruit and vegetable farms because of travel restrictions during the coronavirus outbreak, according to CNN, and without people to pick the produce, it could rot on the vine.

"In the coming months, many thousands of people will be needed to bring in the crops. It will be hard graft but is hugely important if we are to avoid the growing crops going to waste," he said.

He called for a second coming of the "Land Army" during World War I, which saw many women taking on agriculture jobs as men were called to fight in the military.

"It is of the utmost importance, and at the height of this global pandemic you will be making a vital contribution to the national effort," he said.

A follow-up tweet from Clarence House asked those who are "looking for work in these difficult times to consider a job picking fruit and vegetables." This echoes comments from George Eustice, environment secretary in the U.K., who announced the Pick for Britain campaign by calling on furloughed British workers to take on these jobs, as only one-third of migrant workers typically expected have arrived in the U.K. as of now.

Prince Charles seemed to get a heated response online, with many questioning the safety of working on such farms and with others criticizing the "optics" of a royal asking citizens to do manual labor.

Prince Charles tested positive for coronavirus back in March but has since recovered and left self-isolation.

I don't know why people are being so harsh to him.

First off, environmental causes are his passion. So it's no surprise he would say this.

Second, I think that he had in mind FDR's "forest corp," who were employed during the Great Depression. These guys did forest work, when jobs weren't available.

At least he's putting out some ideas.

by Anonymousreply 1405/21/2020

The backlash was because it goes against government guidelines and is completely overly simplistic. It's saying "Sitting at home doing nothing all day? Why not travel miles away to a farm to do something you have no experience in!"

Fruit or vegetable picking isn't a fun family day out. The majority of the UK population don't have farms on their doorstep. Families with kids at home because the schools are shut can't just get up and volunteer to pick fruit all day. We've been told not to travel to different areas for day trips.

It's completely tone deaf. I get he had the best intentions at heart and the huge amount of food waste the lockdown is causing in harvest season is saddening, but it wasn't a good idea for him to suggest we're not doing our bit for the country by not all decamping to the countryside to help out.

There's a shortage in the UK for similar reasons--the foreign agricultural workers who used to come to harvest the UK's crops have been chased off by the ugly treatment they've gotten in the past few years since Brexit fever took hold. Though reportedly some are being quietly flown in to work this year, probably with offers of better pay and working conditions.

[bold]The reason for backlash is Charles' self-serving comment wrapped pseudo-virtue.

THE FACTS [/bold]

Charles owns vast tracks of farmland heading into harvest. So does his mother and most of his aristo friends.

B/c of BREXIT there are no immigrants willing to Chunnel to Britain to do the picking.

The problem was not caused by COVID. It was exacerbated by it, but not initiated by it.

[italic]Dear HRH,

Please pay British citizens their minimum wage to harvest crops at your farms. Ensure safety procedures against COVID and close if your duchy experiences an outbreak. In that case, let the fruit rot.

Respectfully (not so much), British public[/italic]

by Anonymousreply 4605/21/2020

Maybe Charles should get up off his (fat) ass, and pick some fruits to pay back the money he owes.

by Anonymousreply 4705/21/2020

To get British people (including Pakistani's) to pick crops you'd have to pay:

Minimum wage of about $11.00 per hour +pro rata holiday pay (5 weeks per year) + payroll tax of 14%.

Free accommodation and meals at a Travel Lodge ( Sort of low end Marriott )

Free transport to place of work.

I'd guess It'd come out about $30 an hour, it'd be cheaper to trash the crop.

Prince Charles talks to his plants and trees. He "shakes hands" with them. I'm not kidding. Walking around his estates picking a random fruit here and there, tending to some trees and working in his gardens is satisfying, relaxing and therapeutic work for him so he thinks the idea of sending people out to pick fruit and vegetables and chatting with the plants would be just as positive for others. Obviously his hobby where others likely do much of the hard labor and the actual hard work of doing that all day every day for a meager living are not exactly the same but that's the place he's coming from.

So let's decamp from the UK, move first to Canada, and then right before the borders are closed, let's decamp to LA, where we are living in a multi-million dollar home and doing nothing except for a photo op delivering meals to the homebound, and posting cutesy photos and videos of our firstborn, and celebrating our second wedding anniversary!

R62 If you wanted to employ people under 18 to pick crops in the UK you'd need to:

Get written Parental consent.

Conduct a risk assessment (and report the results to the Parent and City Council)

Provide supervision.

Inform the City Council (who would need to inspect).

Limit working hours to 12 hours per week in term time and 25/35 hours per week in school holidays.

Thats the sort of attitude that got England through World War II. People banded together and did what was necessary. My grandmother who had never done anything for herself got a very nasty job at a hospital in London as a nurses helper. She did it to contribute and to prove to herself that she could handle almost anything. I asked her once if England could win a war now ( the 90s) and she said- 'absolutely not'. People are too lazy and entitled.

I think Prince Charles' comment is reflecting the values of an earlier generation. People deflect and say its racist and demeaning. But they just lack the desire to do whats necessary to survive.

I was just watching a thing about the Royal Family during WW2 and the Duke of Kent remembered how the tubs in Windsor Castle all had a big black line around the inside about 5 inches from the bottom and that's all the water you were allowed. There's no way that that would fly in today's Britain or America. Americans would dump thousands of gallons of water into the streets as a fuck you to any kind of reasonable restrictions.

Don't ask me where I read this, but I vaguely remember reading something about Prince Charles having a hut or tiny cabin at Highgrove and apparently (think Camilla added this part), no one but absolutely no one is allowed in this tiny little hut. I would not be surprised if he uses that hut as a form of refuge, to "talk" to his grandmother. He is a funny lad that Charles for a royal - deeply spiritual, eco-friendly, immerses himself in classical music and 30s tunes by Bing Cosby because he freely admits it makes "feel better." For all the public display, I think he is essentially a bit of a loner. Maybe someone knows more about this hut or cabin I'm referring to.

Criticism of Meghan and Harry is not all rooted in racism, R71. I mentioned them in my post above as examples of the wide gulf in experiencing this epidemic between Prince Charles and the vast majority of people. When Prince Charles developed symptoms of Covid-19, many reported on the non-discriminatory nature of the virus. Anyone could get it. What went underreported was his easy access to testing at the time. Also, he went to isolate at his estate in Scotland. Most who suffer from this dreadful disease are confined to one bedroom in their home or in a small apartment/flat. He had the luxury to choose from several estate residences, where he isolated himself in a wing of the residence and his wife in another wing. They could recuperate by walking acres of gardens without seeing a soul. That is as one poster here on The Date Lounge observed...undeserved privilege and unearned wealth in operation. That he should lecture the rest of us is galling!

When Meghan Markle married Harry, I couldn't believe that an example of what we admire here in America...a woman in her early to mid-thirties who is an independent, successful career woman...would want to marry into that family. Yes, as a romantic, I fell for the love story. We all want to find someone to love. Much criticism of her was rooted in racism. It was horrible to see her family's conflicts splashed across tabloids to sell those tabloids. Simple acts of hers, like her turning to shut a car door behind her, were suddenly applauded. What acts like that did was to underscore the undeserved privilege and unearned wealth that the family she married into enjoys!

I applauded them for wanting out. It's an American thing to want to pave your own road. Perhaps they looked to his philandering, good-for-nothing uncle and saw what might happen to them. Bravo. And I understand that they simply could not become Mr. and Mrs. Smith in BumFuck, Insert Country Here. But they traded a life of underserved privilege and unearned wealth with certain obligations for a life of underserved privilege and unearned wealth with no obligations. They live "in isolation" in a multi-million dollar compound paid for by his father's unearned wealth.

It is the system that should be faulted. It's 2020. Let's storm the palace! Off with their heads!

R79 you can't have a reasoned discussion with the anti-Meghan freaks because their point of view is so rabid and unmoored in reality. Nuance is not useful when dealing with them. They will write 700-word posts on how awful she is, where every movement is picked apart in the worst way possible. They are not arguing, as you seem to be, from a point of "criticizing the royals". They are arguing with a mixture of racism, misogyny, and anti-Americanism.

Prince Charles, William, Kate and the Queen are probably regretting driving Harry and Meghan off to the point where they are hiding out in LA and trying not to give the tabloids any fuel.

It would be great PR for the Harry and his wife to be cheerfully picking crops. Without them providing cover for the rest of the Royals, billionaire Prince Charles's call to patriotism falls flat and causes people to question why, again, Britain still needs royals.

It was trending the last two days. It's huge because it has reached mainstream media. Before that it was Dojacat and incels. All those threads were locked down or removed. It trended on Twitter. The next one apparently is going to be the Meghan Markle Unpopular Opinions thread. The over 1000 racist comments some classes as hate speech, altered pornagraphic images and the relationship between the anti Markle blog owners who they post as on Lipstick Alley and the UK media.

As far as the hate speech aspect from some of the anti-Markles, I'm not sure how it would be an issue for non-UK or at least US posters since hate speech isn't a crime here. It's against the T&Cs of Twitter and any legitimate website. They can remove posts on this basis (yeah, like Twitter does. They don't even remove tweets involving physical threats) and they can be sued for damages, but it's not a crime. However, if the hate speech is from a UK poster that's another matter.

The places advertising in Britain don't offer free accommodation either, they charge £50 a week, and people would still be paying for their permanent address as well, all on a minimum wage. It just isn't worth the effort and hassle for most British people who are on furlough or welfare.

True grifters don't care where they get their money. She is devoid of conscience and scruples.

R101 yes, you know a lot about someone you never met and have a strange fixation on. I'm sure you are very sane and not at all racist!

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
