UK live music industry say workers are being “ignored” by Rishi Sunak’s new job support scheme
12th October 2020 (NME). "The chancellor’s most recent announcement gives no comfort to the skilled and talented workforce who face a desperate and bitter winter" Leading figures from the UK’s live music industry have said they have found little comfort in Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s new job support scheme, claiming that their sector feels “ignored” by both the plans and the government. Announced last Friday (October 9) and set to launch on November 1, the scheme will benefit employees who work for UK firms that are forced to shut by law due to coronavirus lockdown restrictions.
