Howlin In The Wind


Independent TD Stephen Donnelly said that some senior public sector workers were receiving double the pay of their European counterparts.
In response, Minister Howlin accepted that many were being paid too much.
However, he said there was a process in place for public sector reform and one cannot take the ground from people overnight.
In relation to tackling high wages in the public sector, Sinn Féin’s Mary Lou McDonald said she had lost confidence in the minister’s commitment to tackle the issue, seeing, she said, that he breached his own ceiling cap in relation to his own special advisor’s pay.
