You can also design blocks of luxury flats.

But only if you are a Mason.

The government is to allow 800 foreign abattoir workers into the UK on temporary visas, after warnings from farmers of mass culls.

Judging from the success of the truck driver program, I'm guessing 50 guys will apply and the Brits will process maybe 3 in the first 6 months.

Once again, my high school guidance counselor let me down.

I probably would get fired for pneumatic hammering on the right side of the cow instead of the left.

Or you can just be an Abbott-toir and stay home and just let the carcasses pile up on their own

The UK will have 0% unemployment in about 6 months after everyone gets done with commercial driving school and butchery for Dummies

In my kids Richard Scarry books, I'm slightly disturbed at the number of pigs in the butcher trade.

Foreign...abattoir workers?

Why does that sound like Eli Roth's new torture porn film?

Up to 800 pork butchers will be eligible to apply until the end of the year for six-month visas.

the sheer arrogance of the UK to believe that they are so awesome, people will jump at this opportunity.

Don't let the name throw you, Jimmy.  It's not really a floor, it's more of a steel grating that allows material to sluice through so it can be collected and exported.

The UK Home Office decided the UK needed truckers fast, well faster than the 5500 places they intended to make, and made another 300 for fast tracking. They got 300 applicants but have so far granted 20 of the work visas. Assuming the same applies to the butchers then that 800 means about 44 will get visas.
