    Default Peter Sutherland urges wage restraint





    Mr Sutherland claimed that our costs - mainly but not exclusively on pay - were still far too high, and we had failed to measure our costs against those of other European countries


    What about the Government artificially inflating the price of things i.e. energy, houses, work itself its always pay despite the fact that the evidence is suggesting that people are being squeezed until their pips squeak.

    Pay can only come down if prices come down commensurately unless we want to fuel the suicide epidemic.

    Great idea! - perhaps starting with a 50% cut on the pensions of former Attorney Generals of Ireland who are gainfully employed in the private sector?

    Well, fair play to him. If it was anyone else, I'd take no notice of it. But a man who has, himself, endured the minimum wage for so much of his working life is worthy of all our attention

    I was hoping someone would start this thread, as I can't.


    Great to see this fatcat urging "Hard Decisions"

    RT News: Peter Sutherland urges 'hard decisions'

    'If we did so, it would be apparent that we are still way above average in many areas, particularly in the public sector and this says nothing about pension costs,' he said.

    I suggest we start by withholding his bloated Oireachtas pension, which we pay to him despite him not having reached retirement.

    surely at this stage we should have some sort of prize every month for the likes of Sutherland. we could get someone like Pee Flynn to present the first one.we could call it the 'Marie Antoinette' award. maybe Christope Muller should also be given one retrospectively in recognition of his recent speech.

    Sure, when somebody from the Trilateral Commission and the Bilderberg group and Goldman Sachs and BP advises that whats best for Ireland is lower wages they have their best intentions at heart for our happiness.

    "Peter Sutherland urges wage restraint"

    A bit bloody rich coming from;
    "Chairman of Goldman Sachs International, former Irish attorney general and EU commissioner (imagine the pensions this guy has) and who has built up a stake in the company worth €150 million."


    It's the company with an average salary of $521,000 a year: so how do you get a job like that? - Analysis, Opinion - Independent.ie
