In yet another move to screw the poor, the Irish government is talking about lowering the minimum wage. This would probably translate to lower payments in social welfare, and could cause some of those pesky immigrants to leave.
I have been applying to jobs that are basically minimum wage as it is. So that's not exactly good news, on a personal level.
It's just so bizarre here. And anyone who criticizes this move is vilified in the media, which is so complicit in whatever the government does. Yes, Ireland's minimum wage is higher than most. But it's also incredibly expensive to live here.
No wonder people of Irish descent populate the globe. They are constantly having to escape in search of a better life.
