Ferris hits out at minimum wage cut

1 February, 2011 - by Martin Ferris TD

Sinn Féin TD Martin Ferris today hit out at the Government over the cut in the minimum wage which comes into place today.

Deputy Ferris said:

“On this day the cut to the minimum wage comes into effect. That’s just one of the ways ordinary people have been forced to pay for economic wrongs for which they are not responsible.

“Compare the plight of those on the minimum wage to those TDs and Minister’s resigning on their pensions. Last week, before the month of January was over, Brian Cowen had already earned the annually wage of those on the minimum wage.” ENDS
