Brid Smith TD speaks on railworkers strike Dáil 8.11.17

RAIL WORKERS NEED A PAY RISE. I made this point to Minister Ross yesterday in the Dáil, on foot of his claim that ‘the country can’t afford it’. The Ministers are getting a pay rise on top of their 6 figure incomes; so are TDs, so are CEOs, all on big money. But we can’t pay workers?
