Mick Barry said : “This week is a crucial week in the history of the Debenhams chain. It would be insane for the High Court to liquidate profitable stores and force hundreds of workers from those stores onto the dole,” “The pressure must be stepped up in the three days running up to the court case to save jobs and livelihoods at Debenhams,” External link

Mick Barry said : “Retail Ireland are telling us that 110,000 jobs are on the line in the sector. Already we have seen the closures of Debenhams, Oasis, Warehouse and Laura Ashley. The Debenhams case is a test case and the way that workers are treated here will set a benchmark. I believe that the State should intervene to save 2000 jobs but that at a bare minimum the State should ensure that Debenhams are not allowed to abscond in the middle of a lockdown without paying a penny to their workers” External link

Mick Barry said : “Debenhams have used the Covid-19 crisis as a useful cover for implementing an agenda they had probably planned anyway — shutting down their Irish operations and throwing 2,000 workers under the bus,” “Whether they decide to campaign for jobs or for a decent redundancy package, the Debenhams workers are campaigning for justice and the people of Cork should support them in whatever way they can,” External link

Mick Barry said ( about National Health ) : “A genuinely Left Government will need to introduce Left policies such as building 100,000 social and affordable homes within 3 years; introducing a National Health Service bill as an immediate goal and increasing the national minimum wage to €15 an hour this year. These necessities can never be delivered in any government containing Fianna Fáil and/or Fine Gael and so we call on Sinn Féin to rule out categorically any such coalition, which unfortunately they haven’t yet done,” External link

Mick Barry said : “As far as staff are concerned that’s money to save their jobs, it’s money for a decent redundancy package” External link

Mick Barry said : “This week is a crucial week in the history of the Debenhams chain. It would be insane for the High Court to liquidate profitable stores and force hundreds of workers from those stores onto the dole,” “The pressure must be stepped up in the three days running up to the court case to save jobs and livelihoods at Debenhams,” External link

eecho Tuesday, April 28, 2020 9:24:00 AM EAT

Mick Barry said : “Retail Ireland are telling us that 110,000 jobs are on the line in the sector. Already we have seen the closures of Debenhams, Oasis, Warehouse and Laura Ashley. The Debenhams case is a test case and the way that workers are treated here will set a benchmark. I believe that the State should intervene to save 2000 jobs but that at a bare minimum the State should ensure that Debenhams are not allowed to abscond in the middle of a lockdown without paying a penny to their workers” External link

eecho Thursday, April 23, 2020 11:14:00 AM EAT

Mick Barry said : “Debenhams have used the Covid-19 crisis as a useful cover for implementing an agenda they had probably planned anyway — shutting down their Irish operations and throwing 2,000 workers under the bus,” “Whether they decide to campaign for jobs or for a decent redundancy package, the Debenhams workers are campaigning for justice and the people of Cork should support them in whatever way they can,” External link

Mick Barry said : “Typically the care workers in these places are low paid and now face an intolerable two-fold pressure of facing high risk of coming into contact with the virus and being compelled to self-isolate but in doing so being only able to avail of the Covid 19 sickness benefit scheme,” External link

eecho Sunday, April 12, 2020 7:14:00 PM EAT

Mick Barry concluded : “The Government and HSE must forthwith underwrite an occupational sickness benefit scheme for this sector. I think it is frankly incredible that this has not already been done given that our nursing homes in particular are the greatest sources of Covid19 clusters and Covid19 mortality,” External link

Mick Barry said ( about National Health ) : “A genuinely Left Government will need to introduce Left policies such as building 100,000 social and affordable homes within 3 years; introducing a National Health Service bill as an immediate goal and increasing the national minimum wage to €15 an hour this year. These necessities can never be delivered in any government containing Fianna Fáil and/or Fine Gael and so we call on Sinn Féin to rule out categorically any such coalition, which unfortunately they haven’t yet done,” External link

Mick Barry said ( about Micheal Martin ) : “The next Government is now very likely to be formed before the closure of the Cork Mail Centre. Micheál Martin needs to answer the question as to whether he will intervene to stop the closure if he is Taoiseach before March 31. More than 200 Cork jobs are at stake here - the question should be put, and the question should be answered,” External link

Mick Barry said : “The political establishment cannot be trusted on this issue. Fianna Fáil and the Greens signed up to pension age increases with the Troika, and Fine Gael and Labour implemented those increases,” “Under pressure on the doorsteps in an election campaign Fine Gael have now committed to this new ‘transition payment’ but more is needed and the pension age should just be reduced to 65 full stop,” External link

Mick Barry said : “If rents can be frozen for five years in Berlin I do not see why they cannot be frozen for five years in Ireland too. If experts are saying now that rents may stay sky-high for another 10 years then rent freezes or rent cuts are precisely the kind of bold policy we need to be looking at".
