'Furlough scatters cushions on extremely bumpy road'

An economist has stated that the “eleventh-hour reprieve” of the furlough scheme has ‘scattered some extra cushions’ on what is expected to be a difficult road ahead.

Speaking on the recent ONS figures, Jack Kennedy, UK Economist at job site Indeed, explained: “The eleventh hour reprieve of the furlough scheme, which was extended just hours before it was due to expire at the end of October, has scattered some extra cushions on what is still sure to be an extremely rocky road ahead.”
