Disgraceful

I'm disgusted to hear of 13 migrant Eastern European workers being left stranded on an island by an unscrupulous employer. To treat workers in such a fashion is appalling and no doubt the employer only did it simply because these people were foreign and he/she thought they could get away with it. This is not the first time migrant workers in Ireland have been treated in such a shoddy and spiteful manner. I have always said that the Irish people should extend the hand of welcome to migrant workers, just as our forefathers decades and centuries ago would have liked to have welcomed. Sean Crowe TD is entirely right to call upon further measures to be taken to stop this disgraceful exploitation.
