Tackle Excessive Pay
Croke Park 2 does not tackle excessive pay at the top of the public sector but heaps pain on low and middle income workers.
Nurses, gardaí and fire fighters deliver a vital 24/7 service. Like the rest of us they have mortgages to pay and children to feed. Their pay has been significantly reduced in recent years and they simply have no more to give.
Even after the 10% cut to high pay those at the top of the public sector will still earn more than the French President and British Prime Minister.
If elected Darren O’Rourke will work for action on excessive pay in the public sector.
