    Spotty would prefer it if 41% of employers intended to hire more staff.
    Spotty. A pimple on the arse of politics.

    "However, most of the positivity comes from larger Irish organisations and multinational companies based here. When smaller fully Irish-owned companies were questioned, only 17%, in comparison, said they expect to be able to issue pay rises to all staff members next year"

    Spotty should be aware that referring to oneself in the third person is often viewed by psychologists as a symptom of narcissism.

    Absolute nonsense.

    Rubbish.

    Most firms after €4 billion is taken out of the economy will be looking at wage freezes at the very least.

    Was one retail company surveyed?

    116 firms in total. Most were multinationals no doubt.

    Absolute nonsense.

    Are they trying to infuriate the PS unions

    Dredger should be aware that Spotty is a character, or avatar, and is not real. Applying personality traits to ficticious persons is eh... mad?

    Of course we have turned the corner. Our astute and economic Zen master, minister of finance said so last December. We're flying now thanks to his wizardy. Everything is grand and the Halcyon days of Ireland as predicted by St Colmcille are finally here. Praise be....
