The article doesnt specify who it wants to price out of living in Dublin by giving public servants an advantage (paid by those being priced out of course) over them. Talk about a lose-lose for everyone else.

That is true, but it's also true that they are paid more in major cities in the UK where PS workers here are paid the same whether they live in the middle of Dublin or somewhere in the midlands.

There is a certain logic to paying a premium for cities.

Why not reduce the pay of those living outside of Dublin?

Not to mention the "sick days" that are taken as holidays.

Don't worry. Sinn Fein and friends (the reason we have a property crisis) are to the rescue - https://www.breakingnews.ie/ireland/...ns-888117.html

Yeah with a starting salary of less than 25k good luck with backing up those figures in the last 10 years for new entrants.

Giving teachers/guards/nurses extra cash is a great way to alievate the housing shortage.

Is what landlords will say.

You wouldn't be saying that if you had a child who can't get a comprehensive education because of teacher shortages or you couldn't get the necessary medical treatment because of a shortage of health workers!

Do you not think that paying public sector workers more is justified in order to uphold the constitutional rights to life (i.e. saving of lives by health workers and protection of lives by gardaí and soldiers) and education (i.e. teachers)?



The Constitution permits infringement on some rights for the greater good, i.e. property rights with regard to compulsory purchase orders to make way for motorways.

What about everyone else who works but can't do it? Is it just the teachers you want to protect?

I think you should declare a vested interest here if it applies.

Bloody hell, 2018 is definitely the year when After Hours became Angry Hours. Social welfare recipients, travellers, OAPs getting free public transport access etc. I'm actually surprised it took until nearly the end of the year for a lightning rod to appear to focus attacks on that old reliable, the public servant.....

Isn't that what After Hours is for?
