Episode One: The Future of Work

Season 1, Ep. 1

On this podcast Senator Marie Sherlock chats with Orla O'Connor from the National Womens Council of Ireland and Tom McDonnell from the Nevin Economic Research Institute.

Post pandemic Ireland has been thrown into a whole new way of working. Some of these new ways of working have given rise to more women working full-time, better flexibility to families and highlighting the need for collective bargaining.

Inflation is at record levels, prices are rising, and costs are rapidly increasing for families. People are worried. Tom gives economic insight into why workers desperately need a pay rise.
