In this Reboot Republic podcast we talk to Dr Laura Bambrick social policy officer of the Irish Congress of Trade Unions. We discuss the economic impact of COVID on workers and businesses, especially the precarious and low paid, the lack of protection for workers in Ireland, the pandemic unemployment benefit and wage subsidy scheme. We also talk about how the pandemic has shown the strengths and weaknesses of the Irish welfare state and the need to adddress inequality and continue state support for workers and sustainable businesses.
