Burnley who are 10th place in the league table have promise to still be paying their workers and these workers includes both the casual workers and the and those that are permanent workers. The English Premier League was suspended and is scheduled to resume on the 30th of April which is very long time from now.
Burnley Management thought it wise that since the only source of living for the workers is what they pay them so if they are not paid, since the league is under suspension due to the coronavirus outbreak in the country, the workers will end up dying of hunger before the virus comes to them.
The Clarets say payments will include casual workers employed by Burnley FC in the community. According to chief executive Neil Hart he said: “Our overriding priority is to look after the wellbeing of our staff and their families during this testing time.”
Burnley was 10th in the Premier League table when football was suspended because of the Covid-19 outbreak, with nine matches remaining. With football players and agents donating funds to help fight this coronavirus in Europa Burnley has decided to support their government the little way they can.
Yesterday Brighton and Bournemouth made promise to donate 1,000 tickets to NHS workers for future matches when football is able to resume. Brighton were also one of several Premier League clubs who donated hundreds of meals to local homeless charities after the league was postponed.
