The Sinn Féin jobs and enterprise spokesperson Peadar Tóibín TD has today responded to the launch of Business for Ireland saying “all the Treaty offers is more of the same – recession, business closures and unemployment.”
“The Irish and Eurozone economies desperately need investment in jobs and growth. The Government and their EU counterparts are proposing the very opposite. The only way to generate growth is to improve competitiveness and simultaneously stimulate demand. This is recognised by the growing number of political parties, trade unions and electorates across Europe who are opposing the austerity.
“This government’s policy of austerity is becoming increasingly isolated within the EU. This Austerity Treaty is increasingly being recognised as unworkable. Now is the time for investment in jobs.”
