Yes, it's a pay rise

• I have just been listening to 'Morning Ireland' and the various opinions offered on whether the increments due to public servants under the Croke Park Agreement represent a pay rise or not.

A union official was defending the increments on the basis that they were mostly going to "lowly" paid workers on €440 per week. Is he serious?!

First of all, let's call a spade a spade. It's a pay rise, it increases take-home pay and gives these individuals more money in their pocket.
