Employers Call For Irish Minimum Wage Freeze

Recommended Posts


Brendan McGinty, director of industrial relations at Ibec, told an Oireachtas (parliament) committee that a minimum wage of €8.65 an hour “is clearly part of Ireland’s competitiveness disadvantage”.

He said that by comparison, the UK rate of £5.80 per hour is worth €6.80. “This represents an over 20 per cent wage cost competitive advantage for businesses based in the UK,” said McGinty.

Of course this is entirely disingenuous as base don that argument the jobs are likely going to end up in China or India anyway.
