Speaking during a Dáil debate on Tuesday on unemployment and training Sinn Féin Economic Spokesper-son Arthur Morgan TD has called on government to urgently introduce a specific back to education scheme for construction sector workers under the age of 25 who are without the Leaving Certificate.
The Louth TD said:
“Sinn Féin has constantly highlighted the need for training in the last two years as it became apparent that the economy was contracting and job losses were on the rise. In fact, even before the current economic crisis, we had pointed out that the construction industry in particular was heading for a crash and that the state risked massive unemployment unless it started training workers in that sector in alternative industry.”
