Furlough stories

Anyone got any? To start the ball rolling this is something I posted on another thread yesterday:-

Heard an awful furlough story yesterday about a mate of our younger daughters (a young Scottish lad).Basically he's been furloughed by his teaching company and being paid 50% of his salary by the company,the Spanish Govt .paying 30%.So he's being paid 80% of his normal salary.Yet he's expected to work 40 hours online FT changing the business from a presential F2F one to an online teaching business.This is obviously not sustainable once the furlough scheme ends here.

Other stories been on the news about companies putting people on furlough and employing other workers more cheaply to do their jobs.Disgraceful.
