    There is an over estimation of it , in this country, imo. And you didnt address its exploitative nature in your comment.

    Edit: Tourism isn't the basis of a powerful economy anywhere.

    The wages are rubbish , the hours are insane. Ask ANYBODY who has any experience of the industry.
    Numerous official reports also. Common knowledge really.

    Minimum wage and less payers, also exploiting non visa holding workers, also pocketing huge profits on everyone else's backs, including the private sector pension fund raid!

    You might have an argument on the minimum wage, if Ireland didn't already have one of the highest minimum wages in the World.

    Not very often. Lately there is a trend for government agencies , such as Turas nua , to direct people to these low paid , exploitative jobs. Or else! if you get my drift.
