Wicklow's Sinn Fein TD Launches Proposal For Equality Payment For Jobseekers

Young job-seekers continue to be discriminated against and the problem is getting worse each year.

That's according to Sinn Féin, which is today launching proposals it says will deliver equality for the 19,000 young people currently looking for employment.
The party's employment and social protection spokesperson, Wicklow T.D. John Brady, says an increase in jobseeker's payments in every budget widens the gap between what a 24-year-old and 26-year-old gets.

He says it's now high time the government acted to end the injustice
