CE Scheme Workers of Ireland Unite to Demand the living wage of €11.90 per hour in Budget 2019.

CE Scheme Workers of Ireland Unite to Demand the living wage of €11.90 per hour in Budget 2019.

We demand that the Department of Finance in its 2019 Budget increase the hourly rate of Community Employment Scheme workers to the living wage of €11.90 per hour.

Why is this important?

This is important because CE Scheme Workers are only afforded part-time hours by the rules of the CE Scheme and this is a demand to make work pay. The breadline is not an acceptable position to be in for workers who through no fault of their own are on the entry level end of the labour market.

Reasons for signing

  • C. E. Schemes are an important step back into the workforce. Monetary benefits are an incentive to encourage people to take this potentially pivotal step*
  • I signed because after 11 years of austerity and recession workers need a pay rise which will stimulate the economy and to the benefit of all.
