Deputy Clare Daly this morning raised the issue of employees of Hertz Car Hire who were paid an hourly rate of €2.46. The national minimum wage is €8.65 per hour.
The employees were told the figure was due to “emergency tax” and it would be rectified.
Hertz rely heavily on European workers who are more vulnerable the deputy said.
Deputy Daly described it as fraud. Minister of State at the Department of Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Ged Nash said it was a criminal offence.
Fuppin’ rental, in fairness.
