Vagrants! Pret A Manger want you!
Pret A Manger is going to create over 500 jobs in the UK, and interestingly, they're open to applications from the homeless.
The firm already give leftover food to vagrants and now, is planning to recruit them once they get over the overbearing smell of ammonia coming from their crotches.
Chief executive Clive Schlee said: 'Pret plans to expand the Pret apprenticeship scheme for the homeless and increase the number of apprentices to 70 this year. The scheme offers an opportunity to break the cycle of homelessness by providing the most valuable gift of all - a paid job in a lively social environment.'
Of course, this neat trick is a reply to criticisms that Pret have come under in the past, most noticeably from Employment Minister Chris Grayling who said that it was ‘unacceptable’ for food chains to employ all-foreign staff at a time when British people were losing their jobs.
One question that remains unanswered is how the homeless are going to actually apply for these new jobs. You're average cardboard shelter doesn't tend to have a printer installed in it and, if it did, previous experience of drinking Special Brew and defecating in doorways won't really make for a decent CV.
