    Rishi Sunak has unveiled a new scheme to support wages during the pandemic but admitted that it will leave many facing an uncertain future. The chancellor announced the new measures in a bid to avert a winter jobs crisis as the current furlough scheme comes to an end and tougher restrictions are introduced to combat coronavirus. Mr Sunak’s plan will see the government, together with employers, top up wages for staff working as little as a third of their normal hours, for six months starting from November – so that they can keep their jobs.
