100,000 welcomes?

Fair play to Socialist TD Joe Higgins for highlighting in the Dáil the disgraceful treatment of some migrant workers in this country. Listening to his speech last night in the Oireachtas Report, I thought it was disgraceful that the Turkish company, who receive tax benefits to trade in Ireland, are exploiting their own countrymen in such a cruel way. The Irish people would be appalled if an irish worker had worked over 80 hours a week and received less than €1000 but had 3/4 of his salary stolen, so too must we be as viligant in protecting the rights of foreign workers in our country.
