Greater Manchester Mayor Andy Burnham described the Eat Out to Help Out program as a mistake. The government should not subsidize meals without allocating funds to poorly paid workers to take the time to isolate themselves.
In the Sunday Mirror, he wrote: “The national ban was loosened too early, and it was a big mistake to encourage people to go back to the pub on Super Saturday, as was the Eat Out to Help Out program.
"We shouldn't be spending taxpayers' money subsidizing meals, but not helping low-wage workers take time off to protect their health."
