NWCI Presentation to the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation on the Low Pay Commission
Published: Tuesday, April 07, 2015
Over 60% of those on low pay are women and, according to the CSO, 50% of women in Ireland are earning €20,000 or less. The establishment of a Low Pay Commission is a positive step and a very welcome recognition of a serious problem around low pay in Ireland. It is critically important that the Commission reflect a strong gender perspective in its analysis and recommendations.
