No. We have very high minimum wage levels and even higher levels of social transfers. We also have a large cohort of the workforce which is very underskilled. That's where we should be spending money.Is there no consideration to be made that perhaps low paid private sector workers are underpaid?
No, it's apparent that there is a shortage of housing and it is blindingly obvious that increasing money supply without increasing housing supply will just push up prices even more.Considering increasing homelessness, considering the amounts of people in receipt of rent supplement, FIS, etc is it not becoming apparent that the incomes of low paid are increasingly insufficient?
Okay, so?Certainly DOB only last June pointed to a growing lean, competitive economy that wasnt manifesting in wage increases in the private sector.
Nope, just asked to participate as someone from industry who worked with University Start-up's and had some dealings with Science Foundation Ireland. T'was a brief affaire.That sounds like you were part of a lobby group?
