Hello all, just heard a programme on Radio 4, part of which related to the impact on actors and musicians in relation to the shut down of theatres and other performances.
If I can believe my ears, one person was actually saying that she couldn't possibly work stacking shelves, as it might damage her fingers!
When times were tough, Mr P (a highly qualified engineer) took work packing dog food in one place, and jigsaws in another!
I took work as a cleaner in a holiday park (shortlived, thank god!)
Yes, I appreciate actors, singers, dancers, musicians may not be especially adept at manual tasks, but to think you might be exempt because of the potential "damage" to your fingers!
Would love to be a fly on the wall in the Jobcentre for that interview!
P.S.Working with some self employed subcontractors some have taken out loss of earnings insurance, which hopefully will cover them.
