When supermarkets treat milk as a loss leader, dairy farmers have to cut costs, results in low wage low skilled workers and scenes like this:

Time to set a legal price floor of 75p per pint.

Or this has nothing to do with the price of milk and he's just a chav with no brains or feelings.

Who was only employed because farmers need to hire the cheapest labour possible due to the low price.

If the farmer could add a couple of quid to the hourly rate they would likely get people with more brains and feelings applying for the job.

You pay peanuts you get monkeys. Unnaturally low prices and poverty wages help no one.

But also there may not be a queue of people wanting to work on a farm due to the long unsociable hours and other stuff such as weather etc. This may have been the only willing person for the job.

I agree milk price should be set to stop the supermarkets taking advantage but whilst shoppers have the option of a cheap pint, they'll take it. Same as any other food on the shelf such as cheap chicken.

Morrisons offer a 'Farmers Pint' where you pay more but they should only offer one option and that's it.

Indeed. Given the unsociable hours etc, the wages on offer should be even higher. This should be factored into the price. Agree with all you say.
