The uppity self-employed? Just who do they think they are?
'Who Do You Think You Are?" It's not just the name of a hit TV show, it's also the prevailing attitude of continuous Irish governments and top civil servants towards those who have the temerity to be self-employed. You want to create a job for yourself - and maybe while you're at it for a few other people? Now, now, now lads, why would you want to be showing the rest of us up? Don't you know it's only foreign people and the State who are allowed to be involved in such a thing as 'job creation'. Sure, when we have Google, Apple, the Public Sector and Jobsbridge, why would we need home-grown entrepreneurs?
