Unless YOU choose otherwise.
From Reverse The Cuts:
To: Joan Burton TD, Minister for Social Protection
I strongly believe that Job Seeker’s payments to people under 26 must not be cut.
It is fundamentally unjust that young unemployed adults, who can vote and are required to pay income tax, are expected to accept lesser welfare payments than older people.
All this cut truly ‘incentivises’ is emigration – to a country where our youth and our talents are recognised.
Young people did not cause this crisis and we will not pay for it. This cut must be reversed.
If you agree you may sign here (all ages)
