Government Address Loophole In Wage Subsidy Scheme

The temporary wage subsidy scheme is being changed to include woman on Maternity leave.

They had been excluded from the payment due to an anomaly.

The payment will be backdated to the start of the scheme and legislated for later in the year.

Finance Minister Paschal Donohoe says he wants all workers to be treated equally
