according to the press association Tanaiste Mary Coughlan (calamity Mary )has vowed to deliver on plans to create more than 100,000 new jobs from foreign investors. IDA Ireland aims to lure hundreds of overseas firms over the next four years, with more than half to be based outside Dublin and Cork. The target was included in an estimate by Fas and the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) that 250,000 extra jobs would be generated by 2015.
Now that is 20,000 jobs a year for the next 5 years right? Calamity wants to deliver, wrong!
What will happens is this, 65,000people will emigrate
Plus we already have 500,000 now unemployed and in 5 years time we will have a minimum of another 250,000 jobs going from these shores
Of 50,000 new workers coming from the various educational instustions every year with no jobs to go to and with the economy contracting because of the credit crunch that will have to continue at least for the next 10 years.
I can’t see what difference this promise will make. When the last time a politician’s promise was was actually delivered on?
Never baring in mind this minster sat back and allowed 800 jobs disappear that we know of!
Cuts at the national training budget at FAS, (and I have personally experienced this).
Ever since she became minster two and a half years ago, we still have no jobs stimulus and the unemployed are thrown on the scrapheap
This is the last person we should rely on to kick start the jobs market!
we want action on Jobs now and not empty promises!
it’s time for the unemployed to unite under one banner and create a union for the unemployed
get up and take action to-day!
