-----but Wexford Creamery milk is €1.32. That is roughly the equivalent of the difference of this budget to a household on the minimum wage. It is hard, seeing that reality, to agree with the Tánaiste that this budget is making work worthwhile. What is maddening about this is that it would not have cost much to make it different. A simple change to the terms of reference of the Low Pay Commission would have mandated it to work towards delivering a living wage for all, as the Labour Party demanded. It would have led to a larger increase in the minimum wage and a small amount of funding to increase family income supplement could have raised the income thresholds accordingly. That is not a choice that the myriad on the committee, from Fine Gael to Fianna Fáil to the Independents, thought to make yesterday.
This Government has shown scant regard for the low paid. What of other vulnerable groups? Notwithstanding the Taoiseach's words, children are arguably the group most poorly served by yesterday's budget.
