Let's be consistent in our quest to cut pay

Now that our overpaid and uncompetitive minimum-wage workers are to be brought into line with other countries, will the same apply to our politicians, senior civil servants, hospital consultants, university professors, county managers, etc?

Or -- as ever in Ireland -- would that raise legal and constitutional issues? New Government; plus ca change.
