Incumbents got a boost at the local elections, but not because they handled the coronavirus crisis well. They got a boost because they've been faced with lacklustre opponents and a supine media.

Protest Supermac's Eyre Square Galway - Friday 16th April

category galway | worker & community struggles and protests | event notice author Wednesday April 14, 2010 14:25author by Migrants' Rights Report this post to the editors

The Migrant Rights Centre has called a protest outside Supermac's Eyre Square at 1pm on Friday 16th April.

Supermac's is one of a number of restaurants calling for a one euro reduction in the national minimum wage, even though it saw its pre-tax profits quadruple last year!

Join the protest to defend low paid workers.

Supermacs in Galway are well known for the way they cut costs:

(It doesn't cost much to wash a place........especially when the cleaner is on the minimum wage.)

Note how the judge cow-towed to McDonagh:

"Convicting Supermacs, Judge Garvan paid tribute to the company owner. He said Pat McDonagh was a great success story and could have not achieved such success unless he had maintained the highest standards at his restaurants. "They have taken on the other Big Mac" Judge Garvan said, "but there was a certain laxity in the restaurants concerned."

In any other country in Europe Pat McDonagh would have been booted out of the restauraunt trade forever in that court..
