yes, i was at some public offices recently and i saw your colleagues with the high education. Overweight, red faced, hungover looking, wearing jeans, looking at Facebook on their computers, and barely able to speak to customers.The report is comparing apples with oranges.
For most PS jobs you need a high level of education.
It even points that out in the report.
germany has a lot of positives you dont pay most of your wages on rent .if your in the aok you pay 10 euro to see a doctor or dentist .I had to go to a hospital when i lived there after id broken my ribs i was xrayed and examined by a doctor and went home 45 minutes later Wouldn't happen hereHigh minimum wage? Is it even a tenner an hour? Tax is high here in Germany, but you get a solid pension at the end of it, free health care up to a point, and you can afford to drive.
However, Germany also has its negatives..I've heard stories of people sending their elderly folks to Thailand and Poland to get looked after. I've also seen older germans rustling in bins for plastic bottles to trade in for a few euro.
True, but rent ain't cheap anymore, especially around Frankfurt. Salaries are probably better in Ireland generally, but its offset by the cost of living. I think you get a better deal on the continent.germany has a lot of positives you dont pay most of your wages on rent .if your in the aok you pay 10 euro to see a doctor or dentist .I had to go to a hospital when i lived there after id broken my ribs i was xrayed and examined by a doctor and went home 45 minutes later Wouldn't happen here
Go to the “UK” and cars are much cheaper but when you import it to Eire, the illegal VRT is added and then you are still charged VAT. Double taxation !!Black pill alert!
As someone who has lived and worked in countries like Germany, UK, and Australia. I am constantly perplexed at why there isn't riots at the expense of things in Ireland.
Healthcare is basically 60 euro to even smile at a doctor, if there is a health issue then you need to take out a loan! Private care is 100 euro per month, but you still need to pay 40 euro per visit.
Car insurance & road tax ridiculous, enough said.
Rent and house prices inflated beyond belief. How do people afford to live in Ireland? Do most live hand to mouth?
Yes on the few occasions over the past 3 yrs I've seen a lot of that. Older foreigners being brought into a and e and not a word of English. Being brought over as child minders for their grandkids. But they will use the system when they get sick.Plenty of Polish bringing their parents here too for healthcare etc. I see it everyday where I work.
No wonder the health system is failing so quickly.
While politicians brag about increased GDP and high employment, many ordinary citizens struggle to pay their rent, get access to quality healthcare, or find a school for their kids.
First, just talk to people living in Ireland about long commutes to work, the difficulty of finding a school for their children, the exorbitant cost of childcare, prohibitely high insurance costs, their struggles to purchase or rent a home, or our spectacularly mismanaged health service, and you will have good reason to doubt the claim that Irish people enjoy a quality of life that far outpaces that of their counterparts in other countries.
Second, other reports loudly contradict the notion that Ireland ranks high in quality of life by comparison with the rest of the world. For example, according to the Expat Insider 2019 report, Ireland fares pretty abysmally as an expat destination. According to that report, among 64 countries, Ireland ranks 53rd in quality of life, 60th in leisure options, 55th in personal happiness, 58th in travel and transportation, and 49th in health and well-being.
I'm always a bit sceptical of these surveys. However, having been around I can say that that Ireland is far far from the number 3 spot. For people like Varadkar it is probably correct.No, Ireland does not have the 3rd highest quality of life in the world
We live in an era in which policymakers and political leaders appear to dote on spreadsheets and statistical reports while disdaining the values that matter to ordinary citizens. While politicians brag about increased GDP and high employment, many ordinary citizens struggle to pay their rent...gript.ie
Are they entitled to use the system?Yes on the few occasions over the past 3 yrs I've seen a lot of that. Older foreigners being brought into a and e and not a word of English. Being brought over as child minders for their grandkids. But they will use the system when they get sick.
I don't know but they were getting treatment and not a word of English, their Adult offspring interpreting for them. Incidentally last time I was in Connolly, plenty of able bodied foreigners in cubicles getting bed/ treatment whilst 2 poor oul Irish pensioners left sitting in chairs for the night. A fucking disgrace.Are they entitled to use the system?
