“Lurgan Job Losses Concerning Amid Cost-of-Living Crisis” – Mc Causland

Aontú Upper Bann Rep Kieran Mc Causland has expressed his concern as news emerges of redundancies at a local business in Lurgan. 


Speaking today, Mr Mc Causland has said "I have learned that 192 people are to be made redundant at Americold here in Lurgan. This is very distressing news for families, given the spiralling Cost-of-Living crisis.  ". 


"While 50 of the 192 job losses are said to receive new contracts, this still puts pressure on families affected and leaves the majority out of work. It is my intention to contact Americold personally for clarification on these points and to see if anything can be done to save these jobs " concluded Mr Mc Causland

The Irish political system is radically broken

In Ireland the vast majority of elected representatives put a finger in the air to check which way the political wind is blowing. They have one eye on their leaders – seeking brownie points – and another eye keeping their seat safe. If elected reps shut up and do as they’re told, they are promoted; if they stand up for what they believe in, they are demoted. No wonder we have the political class we have. No wonder one point one billion euro is being buried in a hole under the National Children’s Hospital and that Stormont is in stalemate.

Throughout Ireland, many people are now afraid to say what they feel, many are afraid to respectfully engage on a range of different topics. Many feel there is a new censorship and a new political correctness in Ireland, that opposition to the establishment is being deleted.

Respectful opposition is not the enemy. Respectful opposition is a critical element of a functional democracy. Aontú will have the backbone to stand up, without fear, for you.
