Why, because everyone is now just getting a Permitted Worker form, signed by their boss as the "I'm allowed to go to work" reason.
The definition of "essential work" has blurred to the point of irrelevance.
Mrs works for a family run marketing firm. Is this essential - absolutely Fking NOT. Got the permit, off you go to work.
Construction industry...... Get in the way of them and their $200k a year and look out!!
Just turn the effing joint off. Nope too hard. Lets see the figures still triple digits in 5 weeks from now, and the effluent will really hit the fan.
Here's the kicker. You could say you're going to do the right thing and not go out for 6 weeks as they want. But unless EVERYONE does at the same time, the community transition will still be there and present the risk to the point where you doing the 6 week hiatus will have been pointless if its still around for you to get.
So unless the other guy stops doing what they're doing, then the argument will always come back to why should I?? The disparity of this intended effect is contributing to the constant angles here being sought to get around why some places should remain at work.
And in 5 weeks we'll see the extension of stage 4
