It would be interesting to get information on how many people are employed are in Ireland on contract now. It seems to be a rapidly growing sector during this recession. This of course is going to cause major revenue problems for the government. The minimum wage or little more is the going rate. No pension or private health insurance. This does not bode well for government planning. Less revenue coming in. Contract workers unable to get bank/building society loans etc. I believe if this type of employment if it accelerates to very high levels of the total workforce the government is in trouble.
Anyone else have views on this
