 Children of Key Workers
Topic Originator: GG Riva  
Date:   Fri 20 Mar 08:26

Schools are to be kept open for the children of key workers, which is understandable, but the list is pretty exhaustive:-

It might be easier to list those whose children are barred from attending school.

We'll find out how indispensable they really are the next time they ask for a pay rise.

The are suggesting only those in those groups who REALLY need to come in. Both myself and my wife work for the NHS. She will be going in as she is going to be transferred from normal duties. Although I'm in the same group as her, I'm fortunate that my work can be done remotely and I can work evenings/weekends to a certain extent.

Same will apply to councils. We still need the bins emptied, vulnerable people supported, lights fixed and children taught. We can probably survive without policy makers right now.

A colleague’s partner works in a private nursery. They are being asked to stay open to look after kids from these groups.
The problem is she has an 8 year old at school so my colleague might have to stay off work to look after him.
Does she fall under this essential worker group ?

''Education and childcare
Nursery, teaching staff and social workers.''

The answer is 'yes'.

Mate of mine works in a call centre for a bank and is saying he's essential. That surely can't be 'essential'?!

There is a provision for some folks in the financial sector. Given they want money moving to folks then it wouldn't surprise me.

Not wanting to make light of this god forsaken apocalypse, but last night, sat my two boys down and with the most serious face I could muster, told them that, as I was considered a key worker, that they would still be going to school. They won't be btw

I've never, ever seen such disappointment on someone's face, as their's 😅😅 Wish I had videoed it.

My wife is a carer and do you what info she has had from her bosses......nothing.
So she will still care for folk that go to places and come home.
People say aye but folk are in their houses but she down not visit the same people everyday and there could have been up to 10 different carers going to the same address before her 4 day shift starts!
I have a 16 year old lass that can look after the 10 year old boy rasper but we are more in the class range to get the virus.

Jeffrey, if you had your credit/debit card lost or stolen would you feel it was essential to cancel the card?
Probably a whole range of jobs could be considered essential at some level or another.
What it seems to be is that a good number of the essential workers are on the lowest wages are just going to have to get on it with while the managers and policy makers and those on a lucrative wage will get to "work" from home while chilling out binge watching netflix.

No one would talk much in society if they realised how often they misunderstood others

Key workers... puts me in mind of the last chapter of 'Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy'. Let's form an orderly queue for that spaceship.

Raymie if a teacher etc is looking after key workers children in effect it makes their children the same and should be in same nursery or school.
However partner needs to be key worker as well
From my understanding

Big T Par,

I also did the same at dinner tonight with my 3, explaining as I was a key worker they would be expected to go to school.
I had to laugh at my sons response, can I not just come to work with you! Genuinely couldn’t think why he couldn’t!

Jake not sure if you’ve read it already but every Sunday Tesco stores will open an hour earlier purely for Tesco colleagues and NHS staff, won’t be able to purchase anything at checkout until the store formally opens but give you the opportunity to browse and pick the stuff you need.

Cheers Berry. We're fortunate that the local supermarkets seem okay but saw down south there's nurses going in to get their lunch and there's nothing for them. Understand people are worried and stocking up in case they need to self-isolate but they can still get their food delivered and left at the door.

The problem is that there are no delivery slots available. We normally get a delivery once a week.....cant get one round here now for the next 3.

Our local shops always have enough meat. Now they have been stripped bare. Folks are clearly buyin extra and freezing it.

Fannies.
