The recent events have made the mundane things in life terribly difficult to do and one of the unfortunate side effects are definitely people being cut off from their primary sources of income.
And it’s a fairly similar situation in the footballing world as well. With no live games to be played, clubs are in for some financial consequences while some of their workers are currently not needed.
But Arsenal have decided to pay matchday and non-matchday casual workers until April 30 and will then asses the situation once again after that period.
Is Philippe Coutinho better than Mesut Ozil?
James Benge believes that more Premier League clubs should actually follow their example and do the same because there is certainly enough money in the league to make something like that happen.
After all, to them, it shouldn’t really be that big of a problem while for the casual matchday and non-matchday workers, it might make the world of difference.
No reason why other Premier League clubs who haven't followed Brighton, Arsenal's steps for casual staff shouldn't do the same. There's enough money in the game to do the right thing.
