    Default Eamon Gilmore defending wage inequality for new graduate nurses on Morning ireland this morning, What do genuine old labour think about this??....

    What do grassroots Labour members think of Gilmore's interview on morning Ireland this morning. Particularly his defense of wage inequality for new graduate nurses. I can't ever re-call a labour leader making or defending such decisions. Here is a link to the audio with the pay issue starting at 9mins 15 seconds approx.

    What is so objectionable to new recruits being paid less than existing staff? (even if they are doing the same job). Either they can accept the terms, pays and conditions or not. Different times, different contractual terms. There is no equality issue here.

    Nonsense. There is no reason why existing staff oughtnt take a pay cut to ensure that new staff recruited are given fair pay.

    Furthermore, why don't the existing staff strike to ensure the new recruits are properly paid?

    Do you agree with Gilmores decision to increase the salary of those chosen by him to act as his and his party's advisors and increase their salary by €60,000 or €70,000 when he came into power? [An increase which resulted in their salary exceeding the recommended amount set down by the Department of Finance by as much as 70%]

    Do you agree, on that basis, that he can be taken seriously when he tries to defend the employemnt of new nurses at low pay rates?

    Gilmore is about as Labour as Maggie Thatcher!
    If you continue to elect idiots in elections, don't be surprised when the result is an idiotic government.

    Labour have completely jumped the shark. The leadership and by tacit approval the membership and supporters now espouse policies that any left leaning party in the world wouldn't support under any situation.

    Labour stand for nothing only power and the wages and pensions that power grants them. Another failed party whose main ideology turned out to be pocket lining.

    Maggie had her own ideology like it or despise it. She wouldn't piss on Gilmore whose main ideology is lining his and his friends pockets with state money and little else.

    I thought this point raised on another site was particularly damning in this regard.
    Irish Nurses and Midwives Organisation general secretary Liam Doran said the move was an attempt to introduce cheap labour.
    He said many new graduates who were already in employment were having their contracts cancelled, forcing them to reapply for lower-paid jobs.
    hahahaha
