    Default PS pay, now banks, who is next for the chop?

    Banks told to cut remuneration by up to 10% - RTÉ News

    It would appear that pay cuts are on the table for the medium term now for several sectors.

    Who is next?

    And when will it end?
    Ask not what your country can do for you, but what your country can do for a bank

    you said it token is the word

    pathetic is word in relation to the cuts the buffoons have taken who got us here

    cowen/ahern/ahern/coughlan/killeen/dempsey (apologies to those i have forgotten)

    put the notion of their property rights to the people and stop hiding behind the legal opinions of faceless bureaucrats (who are hardly going to give advise which may impact on their own pensions)

    at a minimum publish the legal advice

    Antone who persists in working will have to face pay cuts, increased hours & increased tax going forward...this has to happen to Ensure the Vunerable on social welfare will not take any cuts on their social welfare ...this will benefit the hospitality sector as only those on social welfare can afford to socialise in particular those living in social housing with no mortgages etc..and have medical card, back to school allowance etc.....
    basically anyone with a few kids must be off their head working in this country....didtch the mortgage get a place to rent paid for by the state in a half decent area..draw the dole...do an odd day here and there ...happy days....

    My GP dropped his charges from €60 to €50, not brilliant but a start nonetheless. Don't know much about lawyers fees thankfully, would rather have to see a doctor!

    I have a funny feeling social welfare is next on the chopping board.

    Thats a good drop in fairness. But from a high level.
