Outbreaks of Covid-19 in Meat Processing Plants: Statements
Heather Humphreys (Cavan-Monaghan, Fine Gael)
Non-EU migrant workers have rights under the permit with which they come in here. We are very careful that they get paid more than the minimum wage. In certain sectors they get paid considerably more than it. In particular, meat boners receive €27,000 per annum. The WRC is the inspectorate that checks the conditions of employees. They are being taken care of.
