Claims that a Windsor woman has done the same job for sixty years have been challenged on the grounds that she has never had a job.
Employment lawyer Adam Simons said that shaking hands with people while on holiday, collecting bouquets of flowers from children, or making one fifteen minute television broadcast a year could not count as serious employment.
‘It’s just not a proper job,’ Mr Simons said. ‘Neither is cutting ribbon, appearing at a garden party, or inspecting troops with your husband walking behind you.’
But it is understood that although the woman has never had a job in her eighty-five years, plans are still going ahead to celebrate her achievement of having done the job she’s never had for sixty years.
