Supermacs boss says Irish beef farmers are not being paid enough




Supermacs boss Pat McDonagh has come out swinging in favour of Irish beef farmers.

McDonagh is claiming that small Irish family farms are under severe threat because they’re not getting paid enough money.

According to RTE, McDonagh said that farmers and protesters on the picket lines outside processing plants are fighting for their livelihoods and that they’re not getting paid enough money for the amount of time, work and effort that they’re putting into their business.

RTE reports that McDonagh says farmers are getting the same price today that they were getting in 1999, despite all the increases in costs and inflation since that time. The picket lines and protests are going one week today and have no signs of abating anytime soon with no agreement reached.
