In yet another indication that the gombeen capitalist class of this country see the crisis as an opportunity to undermine pay and conditions to increase their profit margins, Ibec Director General Danny McCoy today called for the minimum wage to be cut
Leaving aside the fact that the tax base was narrowed for the wealthy rather than ordinary Joe Soaps, its an utter disgrace that robber-barons like this fellow and Sutherland feel they can come out attacking the poor and vulnerable so that the profits of their mates can be protected.''The entire labour force has to make a contribution to this," Mr McCoy said.
"We cannot afford to leave the (tax) base as narrow as it has been hitherto."
