Very overpaid jobs for the boys

December 10th, 2011 · No Comments · Irish Politics

Oireachtas Retort has been busy writing about the government’s special advisors recently.  He has collated information available on who is working where, what their background is and where available how much they are being paid. Many of those working are party members or former party staff and several have breached the salary cap.

One thing to jump out is the glass ceiling and how it appears to be firmly in place throughout the government departments.

As I wrote this it was hard not to notice there isn’t a single woman over the cap and most appear to be in the “basic” 80k range including those who have been with TDs for some time unlike these talented blow ins from the private sector. While I am of the firm belief that almost everyone featured is paid too much (especially as spin is order of the day ) it seems even the gravy train has catching up to do.

Plus ca change…

Head over to read the rest as the list grows and maybe you can add to it yourself.
