Public servants not to blame

For most of this year I listened to the media and some politicians tell us that public servants do no work at all. This was to create the environment where the pay of public servants could be cut. So imagine my surprise when a small group of public servants "work to rule" and chaos reigns.

Low-paid public servants did not create the crisis in the Irish economy and should resist being scapegoated. The public should support workers, public or private, who are trying to defend their pay.
