Speaking at a virtual event yesterday Tanaiste Leo Varadkar admitted that The economic effects of the pandemic have hit young people working in the private sector and precarious employment hardest, saying “It’s the private sector workers who have lost their jobs – whereas the public sector did not” he also said “The country was very united during the pandemic. The economic crisis that is coming could be very divisive,” yet new Minister for Public Expenditure Michael McGrath confirmed yesterday that TDs, senators and the public service workforce are set for a 2pc pay rise in October –  do you agree with Leo Varadkar, are we facing a public private sector divide in this upcoming financial crisis? Are you in the private sector and think we should pause the public sector pay increase? Or are you in the public sector?
