"The work manual at S&A Produce's farms tells workers there will be a jacuzzi and sauna, a gym, and basketball and football area."
I have to say that anyone really thinking that this would be the case at a farm where the job is to pick strawberries, would have to be rather naive.
Hmmm. It's not impossible that these sorts of facilities could be provided. A simple hot tub and cupboard sauna, bike machine, dumbells plus a yard with a net hoop would do the job as far as the discription goes. Giving people flase expectations is a different matter
I very much hope that the reasons why these guys did what they did is not connected to any bad experiences that happened to them here
I hope the company feel suitably ashamed.
If their employers are in anyway to blame then I hope they suffer more than shame
An update from the horses mouth
There were actually 3 deaths connected to the farm in this time period - 1 guy hung himself, 1 guy was stabbed and 1 guy was kicked to death in Birmingham
The police are saying very little at this stage and speculation is rife - the farm is largely run/controlled by Latvians and Lithuanians and there is talk of a mafia connection. A number of Eastern European British embassies are sending members of staff to investigate possible organised crime connections
As for the sauna, gym etc - the farm does have various bits and pieces like this and is apparently well equi[pped
