933. The Growing Working Poor

The new Survey on Income and Living Conditions is out and the data is very revealing. Rejoining us to dive into the data is Economist with NERI, Ciarán Nugent.
We discuss the deprivation levels that are rising while the economy is booming, the staggering growth (up 60% in one year) of working poor and the very real impact on mental health and social participation that dependency on crumbs from the tax haven table is having on hundreds of thousands of people today.
