    Cork or any other Irish City is not Dublin ..

    Was watching DAVID MCWILLIAMS show last night late on TV3 about this very subject.

    The size of Dublin sprawling out into the surrounding counties and that FDI etc and all other companies dont really want to setup elsewhere in Ireland AND FOR GOOD REASON. A reason caused by bad planning over the decades up to now.

    Also discussed the huge amount of vacant land in and around dublin that never got developed which has resulted in massive big estate building in the surrounding counties resulting in longer commutes etc. He called it applegreen land.

    With respect to Cork, Waterford, Limerick, Galway. That ireland is unique in that it ONLY has Dublin ( the size of ) while other countries like Belgium etc have the large capital city but also have 2nd and 3rd cities that are close enough in size to the capital and are attractive to FDI etc just as is the capital.

    Arent Globtech connected with APPLE? Which itself has had Qs about short term contracts of employment?

    http://www.globetech.ie/?page_id=7

    Apparently this is not the first time they have let go this many people? That contract type thing of not having job for over 6 months w/o a 9 month break?

    MICHAEL CLIFFORD: Where does employment contract flexibility drift across the line into exploitation? ( FROM 2016 )

    This is, in effect, bogus self-employment and is prevalent right across the economy.

    At home, a report from the think tank TASC in June outlined how this was a growing problem. In the area of construction alone, according to TASC, those classified as self-employed increased from 25% in 2006 to 38% today.

    Last Monday 96FM’s Deirdre O’Shaughnessey reported on how the practice is now growing in the tech sector. The story concerned Cork-based firm Globetech, which employs 480 people in developing high-tech solutions for areas like processing parking tickets.

    O’Shaughnessy interviewed “Marie” who has worked in the company for nearly four years on short-term contracts. She would like to be employed, but has been told that she must remain self-employed and work on that basis.

    “When it started I didn’t know how long it would go on,” she said.

    She attempted to have her situation regularised. Others doing her highly-skilled job in the company are treated as employees, yet she has remained on short-term contracts. “When I asked they said ‘no, I can’t have my contract reviewed’.”

    (Globetech issued a statement in which it said that fewer than 10% of those working for the company are classified self-employed).
    For some, the classification of self-employed suits perfectly and is appropriate.

    The problem is the growing number that are being forced into that category. It represents a small but significant shift in wealth from labour to capital at a time when in equality is growing exponentially.

    This, in turn, is being reflected across the world politically through disaffection with mainstream politics and flight to the extremes.

    More jobs in the economy are welcome, but it’s time the Government began addressing the drift in employment practices that are unhealthy for society.

    Nice Christmas present ... NOT


    Job losses announced for Northside of the city ( Cork )- RED FM

    The Northside of the city has been dealt a blow after it was confirmed that one of the biggest employers in the area will close by the end of the next year.

    Yves Rocher is to close with the loss of 60 jobs and concern has now been expressed that further similar job losses in the area could be on the cards if proper investment and attention is not given to the Northside.

    Last year the French cosmetic giant announced it was to to halve its workforce at its Dublin Hill plant however the entire operation will now be gone by September 2018.

    It's understood employees were made aware of the situation on Friday morning.

    Speaking to RedFM News Cllr Kenneth O'Flynn says the Northside of the city is continuing to suffer from lack of infrastructure in the area.
