Liam Gallagher leads stars slamming Rishi Sunak’s suggestion to 'adapt' jobs
Liam Gallagher is one of many stars who have hit back at Rishi Sunak after he suggested people will have to ‘adapt’ the jobs they do following coronavirus.
The chancellor told ITV News that people ‘in all walks of life’ will have to consider changing the jobs they do following the impact of the pandemic on certain industries.
While he was not specifically talking about the Arts, but all industries which have suffered due to the impact of the pandemic, Mr Sunak assured that the government were ‘trying to do everything we can to protect as many jobs as possible’ but added that unemployment is still ‘likely to increase’.
He said: ‘I can’t pretend that everyone can do exactly the same job that they were doing at the beginning of this crisis.
‘That’s why we’ve put a lot of resource into trying to create new opportunities.’
With the Arts being one of the industries that has been hardest hit by the closure of venues, he said there was still work available in the creative industry but there is a need to ‘adapt’.
‘I’m grateful they have now deleted that tweet. I care deeply about the arts which is why our £1.57bn culture package is one of the most generous in the world.’
