I'd be getting more on welfare

Sir -- In Emer O'Kelly's column she refers to a mother of two with a large mortgage who gets €370 a week in welfare and who wants a job. I have a job and I earn less than that.

In the letter of the week, it mentions architects and engineers from Ireland employed in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. Why don't these jobs go to Arabs? Aren't they as clever as us?
