The elephant in the room

Sir -- Barry O Leary of IDA Ireland was on the airwaves this morning, talking about Ireland's competitiveness -- or uncompetitiveness as it now is. Amazingly, he did not once mention nor was asked about our current National Minimum Wage in the conversation.

It is "the elephant in the room" issue regarding our soaring unemployment of 432,000 persons and rising. Come on everyone. Time to get real... two years ago !
