The real reasons why British workers won't pick fruit
The entire working culture of the UK has transformed since British workers last filled seasonal farm work jobs to any significant extent. Rural communities have been transformed due to the “drift from the land” of locals, and people from cities moving to the country or buying second homes, pricing potential farm workers out of the local housing market.

As a result, physically able unemployed people are now less likely to live anywhere near the farms requiring workers. Transport systems in rural areas are limited, and basic, temporary housing is unlikely to attract people away from comfortable, permanent housing situated close to friends and family.

Mearns farm loses £350,000 as fruit left to rot due to picker shortage
As noted in the article - this isn't even because of Brexit. These workers were frequently from outside of the EU. This is because our evil government believes that we should close ourselves off from the world, even when it harms us.

Young man with Asperger's dumped by B&M after 15 hours of free work as campaigners demand end to 'trial' shifts
I don't object to trial shifts. I do object to them being for free! If you're working, you should be paid.

To Understand Rising Inequality, Consider the Janitors at Two Top Companies, Then and Now
tl;dr - outsourcing puts a cap on people's movement, as you have to go from one organisation to another, rather than being able to rise through the ranks.

It's a "divide and conquer" move, which makes it possible to crush the people at the bottom, because they aren't part of the same "us" as the people further up the economic chain.
