Only three weeks ago we learned that Ireland’s deprivation rate had increased to a record of 30.5 per cent, and that almost one in eight children now live in consistent poverty. Now it’s emerged that when an opportunity arose in Budget 2015 to address this crisis, Labour opted to favour the better off when allocating state resources.”Deputy O’Dea lashed out at Tánaiste Joan Burton, saying that she “has presided over approximately €1.8 billion in cuts to social programmes”, which he claims has resulted in more than a million people experiencing “enforced deprivation” in 2013.The Limerick City TD concluded: “The number of long term unemployed has remained static at 180,000 for the past three years, while 74,000 young people are still out or work and not in any education or training schemes. These figures are a direct result of Labour’s policies in Government. This is their legacy. Labour in Government has slashed the very supports which aim to protect vulnerable people.” Previous articledREA up for debut of the year awardNext articleKiller appeals Limerick murder conviction John Keoghhttp://www.limerickpost.ie WhatsApp Advertisement Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Vanishing Ireland podcast documenting interviews with people over 70’s, looking for volunteers to share their stories Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live NewsTaking from the poorBy John Keogh – February 6, 2015 718 Linkedin TAGSFianna FáilJoan BurtonLabourlimerickpoliticsWillie O’Dea Twitter
