HOMELESSNESS, FEMPI, PESCO . Q: What’s the odd-man-out? A: They only have money for the last one. PESCO is the new army they signed us up to lat night (neutrality???) at the cost of €3-4 billion – more than housing homeless children or paying public sector workers would cost. Criminal. And Fianna Fáil the Independents aided and abetted them. I spoke on this Thurs.in the Dáil.

Financial Emergency Measures in the Public Interest  OR FEMPI is now the longest lasting piece of emergency legislation in the history of the State – despite the ‘recovery’. And the government wants to make it permanent. FEMPI ensures discrimination against new workers in the public sector – less money for the same work; it holds down pay rises, increases working hours, wrecks pensions and will ensure that if the nurses, teachers, fireworkers and other essential public servants accept this – the public sector will be next. ALL workers must fight to defeat this attack on our rights. I spoke about this in the Dáil today
