Cowen denies unemployment a ‘low priority’
Wednesday, 16 June 2010 11:39
Taoiseach Brian Cowen has rejected an assertion by Labour Leader Eamon Gilmore that unemployment is a low priority for the Government.
Brian Cowen said the Government had increased the number of training places for the unemployed.
He said jobs were created on the basis of a more competitive economy and predicted net employment creation next year on the basis of current Government strategy.
Eamon Gilmore said the situation was hopelessly depressing for people out of work.
He described as ‘socially unsustainable’ the situation in which one in three young men was on the dole.
Mr Gilmore criticised what he referred to as the Government’s residual theory of employment and encouraged the Taoiseach to come up with a strategy to get the unemployed back to work.
As far as I can see this is exactly the case unelected Taoiseach Cowen has done nothing to help the unemployed it is as if they just don’t exist in his world
A world of big bank bonus, mistrial allowances and perks and giving a did out to the golden circle.
Pulling strokes and looking after your cronies (The gutless greens who see no problem supporting the very gangsters who have destroyed our country) the confidence expressed in Cowen yesterday
The country is clearly in the shits because this unelected Taoiseach guilty of economic treason
survives a no confidence vote and the oppositions leader has to face treachery from his own front bench
The Unemployed don’t expect the get anything from Cowen or the Greens anytime soon
They are too busy looking after the big developers and Bankers and squabbling over the plumb jobs for themselves and their laciest.
People of Ireland wake up for God sake!
