It really does beggar belief – TDs are yet again getting an enormous pay rise of €5,000.
The latest increase in their exorbitant wages will see Irish politicians taking home €94,500… but that’s not all.
Their wages are obviously “far too small” because the almost-€100k salary excludes bonuses such as expenses travelling to and from work, including petrol money.
As many in the public sector see their wages as a tight as a drum, politicians saw it upon themselves that they needed roughly an extra €100 a week.
The new salary has taken effect since Easter weekend. What are your thoughts on the new wages for politicians? Do you think it’s fair? Tell us in the Facebook post comments.
And they expect us to trust politicians? Yeah right!
