Local rate payers and school cleaning workers were left gob-smacked this morning after learning Burnley Council had outsourced cleaning contracts leaving dozens of local cleaners out of work. What's worse it that it was revealed that BC had outsourced the work via the popular local Facebook group "Burnley Buy and Sell"
Local cleaner Sarah Parker told us "I showed up to work Wednesday morning just like any other, when I was told to hand over my cleaning gear as some woman called 'Debrah' had arrived after offering to do it for £2 an hour."
"In the end, the school had to be shut down as all the cleaners they'd found through the facebook group were complete scrotes".
When asked for comment Burnley Council told us "In this harsh economic climate we are always on the look out for new ways to save money, however in this case we have reviewed procedure and will no longer be advertising on 'Burnley Buy and Sell' but will be using the group 'New Burnley Buy and Sell' as advised."
