    Default School building contractors, lets tip of the dodgy ones

    Just read how some of the contractors involved in the current school building programme are engaged in illegal/dodgy practices when it comes to employees. The Governments response is to tender a company to carry out audits on the current contractors? Surely highlighting this fact is only going to tip of the offenders? or is it giving time to contractors to clean up their acts? Why not carry out the audit before informing the public and prosecute the offenders?

    Why were the audits not in place from the start?

    I would haver preferred that the auditing had started at an earlier date. Nonetheless I am delighted that this practice is starting now.
    Just because you did something stupid yesterday does not mean you cannot do something smart today!

    One would have assumed that NERA would have been auditing firms as a matter of course.
    And not just auditing firms in the Construction section, but across all sectors of industry.

    What has NERA being doing since it's inception?
    Politics.ie moderators should moderate instead.

    More Tokenism and pretend regulation by the Irish Government. The authorities have never made any real effort to regulate the Irish construction industry.

    The Irish construction industry is rotten to the core, it's high time it was cleaned up. Every 'contractor' should be properly trained and qualified in the building regulations, and licensed to practice.
    Building regulations and tax compliance is laughed at by most of them.
    'Self Regulation', Homebond and the CIF are a joke.

    The Irish Construction Industry is a Gangster and Mafia paradise.
    Legitimate contractors don't have a hope of in hell of operating or competing.

    Even taxi drivers are properly regulated these days for the price of a taxi fair.
