Ireland has the highest income inequality in the EU, but what does that mean? Well, our guest is Social Policy Officer with the Irish Congress of Trade Unions and her paper into income disparity is a real eye opener.
Laura tells us about how she went from working in the Students Union Shop in Trinity to doing he PhD in Oxford.
She also reveals how a recent ICTU report into Irish registered companies showed that it can take up to 212 years for the lowest paid person in a business to earn the same as one years salary of the CEO’s. You don’t want to miss this.
We are holding a live podcast next Sunday, Jan 26th at the Wiley Fox in Eden Quay and the General Election and Housing will feature. Tickets are available HERE
