Upgrade agriculture and farm work from unskilled to skilled labour
background
With the future unclear, the UK will need more farm workers if we lose overseas labour. Regardless, agriculture is one of the most skilled careers anyone could pick. Upgrading to "skilled" will also help encourage much-needed younger people to join the agricultural career path.
additional details
The food and farming industry employs 3.6mil people. This may sound like a lot, but of this number of workers, British farms employ 80-90,000 seasonal horticultural workers and 150-200,000 full-time. With Brexit and uncertain immigration laws, we need to make sure Britain has its own people to take these roles in case we can no longer get the labour we need. By promoting agriculture as skilled work- which it very much is!- we are more likely to recruit young people to the industry.
