'No Irish' on Polish Construction Sites
Not a totally unexpected backlash to the abuse meted out to Polish Construction workers who had been working in Ireland for the past few years. I think the Trade Union movement warned about ensuring Migrant workers were paid decent rates and treated with dignity. Unfortunately cash hungry employers took complete advantage of the cheap labour coming from Europe. They will continue to do so until the Government accept the need for tight regulation and strong Union agreements in the vulnerable areas such as Construction and the Food Industry.
